Emergency Robot competition

The European Robotics League (ERL), supported by the EU-funded ROCKEU2 project, will run their Emergency Robots competition, 15-23 September, 2017, in Piombino, Italy.

15 September 2017 - 23 September 2017
Piombino, Italy

The ERL Emergency Robots 2017 tournament is a civilian, outdoor robotics competition, with a focus on realistic, multi-domain emergency response scenarios. The competition sees International teams of various disciplines and organisations surveying the scene, collecting data, searching for missing workers and identifying critical hazards, all in a race against the clock.

The challenge was inspired by the 2011 Fukushima accident and is designed to showcase land, marine and flying robots working cooperatively. This competition builds upon the success of euRathlon 2015 Grand Challenge, the first world’s robotics multi-domain competition that took place in 2015.

It is open to universities, companies and industry interested in applying the results of robotics research and development to real world challenges. It will also provide a forum where roboticists from different areas can exchange ideas, show the state-of-the-art and outline the future of robotics research not only in Europe, but globally.
