RoboGames (previously ROBOlympics) is an annual robot contest held in San Mateo, California. The most recent RoboGames was held April 8-10, 2016.
RoboGames is the world's largest open robot competition (according to the Guinness Book of World Records). Competitions typically involve entrants representing a large selection of countries, who compete in over fifty events, including combat robots, walking humanoids, soccer bots, sumo bots, autonomously navigating robots in RoboMagellan and android kung-fu. About two thirds of the robot events are autonomous, while the remaining third are remotely operated ( RCVs). Despite this, a large plurality of entrants in RoboGames remain in the remotely operated events, specifically combat robotics.
RoboGames was selected by Wired for their list of "The Best Ten North American Geek Fests".
