Show details
* Due to the COVID-19 outbreak our entire 2020/21 ERL season has been postponed until 2022. We look forward to sharing further information over the coming months. *

We are pleased to announce the La Spezia (Italy) Local Tournament of the European Robotics League Emergency Robots (ERL-ER), that will be held at the NATO STO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), La Spezia, Italy. Dates and further details to be announced.

The competition is part of the ERL Season 2020-2021 and it will include land and marine robots working in an outdoor realistic environment.
We will challenge the autonomy and cooperation of robotic systems in a disaster response scenario.

Higher level of autonomy will be rewarded in the scoring.
A water basin will host the marine part of the competition, while the docks, a rough outdoor area with trees and bushes and a large building will be the places where land robots will be called to operate.
Some of the tasks/functionalities that will be tested are:
- underwater pipes and structure inspection;
- object recognition;
- underwater mannequin detection;
- localisation of a mannequin and rubble removal in the land area;
- stopping the fire;
- adaptive mission planning;
and other.

For details please see the website: that includes the call for participation.
