The Regulation of Robotics in Europe: Ethical, Legal and Economic Implications
Show details
Educational Reach-Out
International Summer School on ‘The Regulation of Robotics in Europe: Ethical, Legal and Economic Implications’ will be held in Pisa (Tuscany, Italy) from 03th to 08th July, 2017.
This unique initiative, funded by the European Commission through the Jean Monnet Module, stems from the successful experience of the RoboLaw project (www.robolaw.eu) and its subsequent developments. The aim of the Summer School is to provide participants with a broad understanding of the many relevant implications of the regulation of robotics in Europe.

Registration is now open: http://www.santannapisa.it/err/application until June 7th

ERL Emergency Robots 2017 Tournament
Show details
Competition/Challenge
ERL Emergency Robots is a civilian, outdoor robotics competition, with a focus on realistic, multi-domain emergency response scenarios. Inspired by the 2011 Fukushima accident, the ERL Emergency Grand Challenge can only be overcome when land, underwater and flying robots successfully cooperate.

The competition itself 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. After three successful years under the name of ‘euRathlon’ (www.eurathlon.eu), the latest iteration of the competition takes a step forwards as part of the European Robotics League (ERL), a novel model for competitions funded by the European Commission.

To provide teams with realistic challenges that test their robots’ abilities to face real-world situations, the ERL Emergency scenarios have been carefully designed by the project partners and reviewed by an advisory board of experts in field robotics. All the experts have contributed with ideas based on their experience in robotics competitions and in the nuclear and disaster-response sectors.
