The Latin American Robotics Council (LARC) has as goal to organize, with the support of local groups, annual regional and national latin american robotics competitions and symposia. The council promotes the programming of these events, defines the basis for the competitions, and interacts with local volunteers who finally develop the activities themselves. The council works mainly through Internet.

The Latin American Robotics Council is sponsored by the robotics and automation society RAS belonging to IEEE through national professional and student chapters in the region.
