The UChile HomeBreakers team is an effort of the Department of Electrical Engineering of the Universidad de Chile. The team participates in the RoboCup @Home league since 2007, and its social robot Bender obtained in 2007 and 2008 the @Home Innovation Award. As a team with expertise in robot vision, object recognition, and human-robot interaction, we believe that we can provide interesting features to the league, such as: general-purpose object recognition, face analysis tools, human-robot interfaces, and robust selflocalization. This year we have important improvements in our social robot for the @Home competitions. Among them: (i) a new mobile platform, (ii) two new anthropomorphic 6 DOF arms, (iii) a ToF 3D CamCub2.0 camera, (iv) a robust and real-time hand gesture recognition module for dynamic environments, and (v) the joint use of the CARMEN library and our own algorithms for navigation, SLAM and mapping based on a common framework used by other teams of our group. It is also worth to mention that our robot has been used for educational purposes with school children and as referee of robotsoccer games.
