Abstract

Robotics and automation (R∧A)technologies have the potential to transform and improve the lives of people around the globe by addressing the world's toughest challenges. The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (SIGHT) is engaging the academic and nonacademic community to propose viable solutions in R∧A to address relevant world problems through the Humanitarian Robotics and Automation Technology Challenge (HRATC). The HRATC provides a significant opportunity for IEEE Members from around the world to collaborate using their skills and education to benefit humanity. The problems are framed with the environmental, cultural, structural, political, socioeconomic, and resource constraints so that solutions can be developed, deployed, and sustained.
