Starting October 10, the 2014 China Robot Contest and RoboCup Open will be taking place in Hefei, capital of East China's Anhui province, the local government said at a press conference on Monday.

As of September 29, 2,920 competitors from 185 colleges including Tsinghua University and Peking University have registered for the contest, according to the municipal bureau of science and technology.

"Service robots, rescue robots and humanoid robots will be among the highlights," said Chen Xiaoping, professor of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) who acts as deputy director of the organizing committee.

Service robots will perform tasks such as recognizing faces, tracking, grabbing and placing objects, moving ahead along the designed route and circumventing obstacles, if any, in the travel path, Chen said.

"Rescue robots will demonstrate how to search for survivors at the scene of a disaster. They can get where rescue workers cannot."

"And humanoid robots not only look like human beings, but are also as responsive, flexible and perceptive as them," Chen said, adding that "the medium-sized ones are the coolest, for they are able to run with a ball at a maximum speed of 80 km/h."

The annual event is seen as the most recognized and authoritative competition for robots in China. In its 15th year, it is slated to be held in Anhui International Exhibition Center from October 10 to October 12.
