The tournament is part of the FIRA RoboWorld Congress where technicians will be meeting in the Taiwanese city to discuss the newest achievements in the field of robotics. To showcase these advances, teams and their robots will play football matches where the machines will operate autonomously to try and outscore opponents.

The games will present new capabilities with artificial intelligence, sensors and robot control and is seen as a way to get younger audiences involved with the technology. The congress will be divided into three other conferences which will go into greater detail on areas such as computational intelligence, programming, humanoid robotics and robots used for education purposes.

Korea and Japan are among the favourites for the title as the two countries are both working towards goals to develop the technology so that every household will be able to have its own robot.

The aim is to have robots that can teach, guide and perform simple house cleaning tasks and the congress will show how close companies are to achieving that dream. This can all be seen from 26th to 30th August 2011 at the National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology.

Lek Boonlert, marketing head at commented: "The conference sparks a great deal of interest globally for its futuristic ideas and Kaohsiung hotels close to the university will be inundated with bookings as people arrive to showcase their work."
