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.

Audience: Participants include undergraduate students, Master and PhD students, postdocs, researchers from universities/organisations and engineers from industry companies around the world.
The event is open for the general public during the competition days.

As part of the 2018/19 Season, we are pleased to announce a new tournament of the ERL Emergency Service Robots competition to be held in February 2019 in Seville (Spain).
For 2019 ERL Emergency Service Robots competition wishes to foster advanced developments on autonomous capabilities and seamless outdoor/indoor navigation for air and land robots, as these are important milestones to achieve for emergency robotic systems. More information about the competition at: https://sites.google.com/catec.aero/erl-emergency-2019/competition
Prizes for the top teams will be awarded during the next year’s European Robotics Forum (ERF) in Bucharest, Romania. Moreover, participating teams in the 2018/19 Season are candidates to take part in the Major ERL Smart City tournament in Milton Keynes, UK, to be held in the Fall 2019.
