ERL Emergency Robots - Major Tournament 2017
Show details
Competition/Challenge , ERL Emergency , Major
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.

Local organisers: Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), University of the West of England, Bristol, Centre for Advanced Aerospace Technologies (CATEC), Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics FKIE and University of Oulu

Target audience
International teams (research, industry and/or end-users).

ERL Emergency 2017 competition is open to the public and anyone interested can attend as spectator. Spectators do not need to register and the entrance is free.

Please note that minors must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.

1st ERL Industrial Robots - Local Tournament, Sank Agustin
Show details
Competition/Challenge , ERL Industry , Local
We are pleased to announce the first local tournament 2017 on the ERL Industrial Robots challenge to be held at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, Sankt Augustin, Germany. The tournament will be hosted in the ERL-IR testbed at BRSU.

A maximum of 3 teams will be permitted to enter this tournament.

The ERL is composed of multiple "Local tournaments", held in different research labs across Europe, with certified test beds, and a few competitions as part of "Major tournaments" such as RoboCup. Teams participate in a minimum of two tournaments (Local and/or Major) per year and get scores based on their performances. Scores of the best two participations in tournaments for each team are added and teams are ranked based on their cumulative score. Prizes for the top teams are awarded during the next year’s European Robotics Forum (ERF).

ERL Industrial Robots - Major Tournament 2017
Show details
Competition/Challenge , ERL Industry , Major
The European Robotics League Industrial Robots competition is going to hold its second Major Tournament during the RoboCup GermanOpen in Magdeburg from the 3-7 May 2017. Teams have already been selected through the RoboCup qualification process and are therefore free to take part in the ERL-IR competition. Participating teams will have the chance to be scored in parallel to the RoboCup tests, but taking into account the ERL defined metrics. To facilitate automatic benchmarking of a participating robot, teams have the possibility to try out a newly-defined device capable of supporting this. This external and self-sustaining computer can be connected to the robot via Ethernet to collect datasets during a benchmark run and perform an automatic scoring.

Target 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 from 5-7 May.
From 5-6 May the exhibition “Technik begeistert - Perspektive MINT” takes place in the same venue and is open for visitors.
