Louis Vuitton Cup

Louis Vuitton Best Humanoid Award

Since 2002, Louis Vuitton has sponsored the “Louis Vuitton Humanoid Cup” for RoboCup, an international research and educational initiative for artificial intelligence and robotics with a focus on soccer-playing robots. The Humanoid League was added to the RoboCupSoccer event in 2002. Louis Vuitton has created a championship trophy for this program in order to, by aiming to promote development of robots capable of competing against a human team by the year 2050, encourage technological innovation.

Louis Vuitton Humanoid Cup

The “Louis Vuitton Humanoid Cup” to be presented to the champion team of the Humanoid League is a crystal globe crafted by Baccarat, the world’s leading crystal maker, presented in a custom-made Louis Vuitton Monogram canvas hard case with a red lining. The award winning team is entitled to hold the Cup for a year until the next winner shall be determined at the following RoboCup World Championship event. The Cup itself will carry around to the subsequent winning teams until 2050.
