The LEAGUE of Amazing Programmers hosts the annual International Autonomous Robot Competition (iAROC). Key word: autonomous. iAROC is one of the few, if not only, robot competitions that challenge robots to achieve their objectives completely independent of human intervention. They rely solely on the intelligence programmed into their guiding Android smartphones.
iAROC is held annually in San Diego, CA. Teams from across the nation compete to navigate mazes autonomously. Many LEAGUE teams have competed for cash awards that apply toward future academic endeavors.
