Certified Test Beds

ERL Service Robots has five certified test beds around Europe where teams can test some Tasks and Functionality Benchmarks:

 

1. ISRoboNet@Home Test Bed

Institute for Systems and Robotics at Instituto Superior Técnico, U. Lisboa, Portugal

The ISRoboNet@Home test bed consists of a networked robot system composed of 10 IP (cabled-networked) cameras, wirelessly networked with several mobile robots, and an apartment which includes several home automation devices.

2.  ECHORD++’s RIF @Peccioli

The BioRobotics Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Peccioli, Italy.

Peccioli RIF facility is a real apartment suitable for some ERL-SR TBMs and FBMs. The walls are solid walls (not movable) and the apartment includes one main entrance door, some doors to access the rooms and several open spaces. The apartment contains typical furniture, such as tables, chairs, sofa, bookshelves, beds, kitchen furniture and kitchenware, plants, a TV set etc. A technical room is also present. In this room some PCs and monitors are available to monitor and guide the benchmarks. A wireless network is also available in the apartment. Portable devices can be added, including a Motion Capture system mounted on stands.

3.   Leon@Home Test Bed

Universidad de León, León, Spain

The Leon@Home test bed main purpose is to benchmark service robots in a realistic home environment. The experimental area of the ULE robotics group is made up by four parts: a mock-up Apartment, a Control zone with direct vision through a glass wall to the apartment, a small Workshop and a larger Development zone where researchers work.

4.    BRL Anchor Personalised Assisted Living Studio

Bristol Robotics Laboratory, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK

The Anchor Personalised Assisted Living (ARPAL) Studio in the BRL offers facilities for research into innovative person-centred assistive robotics technologies to enable independent living and active ageing within a “Living Lab” testing environment.

The studio has been developed as a typical apartment to provide realistic conditions to pursue vital research on the design and development of assistive robotics that can be deployed in people’s homes.  Providing a multi-disciplinary working environment with access to teams of health care experts and end-users, it provides robotics researchers an opportunity to validate of concepts and trialling of users’ actual experience of technology.

The facility has been constructed to standardised specifications, a v-rep model of the studio is also available.

5.      PAL Robotics Assisted House

PAL Robotics S.L., Barcelona, Spain.

The PAL Robotics Assisted House consists of the environment in which the competition will happen. The house has been developed as a typical apartment to provide realistic conditions to develop assistive robotics.

The facility has been constructed basing on the ERL Service Robots rulebook.
