ERL Consumer Major tournament - IROS 2018, Madrid
Show details
ERL Consumer, Local, Tournament/Challenge
ERL Consumer Service Robots is a competition that aims at bringing together the benefits of scientific benchmarking with the attraction of scientific competitions in the field of consumer service robotics. The objectives are to bolster research in consumer service robotics for home applications, and to raise public awareness of the current and future capabilities of such robot systems to meet societal challenges like healthy ageing and longer independent living. Currently, ERL Consumer raises challenges in domestic environments that resemble similar challenges to be posed in smart city environments (e.g. shopping malls), such as recognising and picking objects, moving outside the home to populated areas, and/or taking elevators between doors. ERL Consumer local tournaments aim to prepare teams for SciRoc, the ERL Smart Cities Challenge.
