ERL Emergency Robots - Major Tournament
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.

ERL Service Robots - Local Tournament
Show details
Competition/Challenge , ERL Service , Local
The European Robotic League Service Robots is an innovative concept for robot competitions. 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.

The ERL Service Robots tournament stems from its predecessor, the RoCKIn@Home competition, and focuses on the domain of service robotics for home application.

Local organisers :
Sapienza University of Rome, Italy
ECHORD++ RIF from the BioRobotis Institute, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Italy.

Target audience
Participants:
International teams (research, industry).

Spectators:
All age ranges, young and adult audience.

The ERL Service Local Tournament is open to the public and anyone interested can attend as spectator. The venue has a small capacity, so the number of places available is limited. Spectators need to register and the entrance is free. Please, contact the local organisers to book your place.

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

ERL Industrial Robots - Local Tournament
Show details
Competition/Challenge , ERL Industry , Local
The European Robotics League is an innovative concept for robot competitions. 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 will be awarded during the next year’s European Robotics Forum (ERF). For more information, please visit https://eu-robotics.net/robotics_league/

We are pleased to announce the first Local Tournament on the ERL Industrial Robots (ERL-IR) challenge, to be held between 22-26 November at the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (BRSU), Sankt Augustin, Germany. The ERL Industrial tournament stems from its predecessor, the RoCKIn@Work competition, and focuses on the domain of industrial robotics in the Factory of the Future and also deals with modern automation issues. https://sites.google.com/site/erlirstaugustin/

Target audience
All age ranges, young and adult audience. The venue has a small capacity, so the number of places available is limited.

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

ERL Service Robots - Local Tournament
Show details
ERL Service
This is the third Tournament of the all-year European Robotics League - Service Robots challenge, and also its second Local Tournament in Lisbon (next one will take place in Peccioli, Italy, in February 2017). Three teams, University of Koblenz (Germany), University of Birmingham (UK) and University of Extremadura + University of Castilla-La Mancha + University of Malaga (Spain), will develop joint work and compete for the ERL Service Robots Year Awards in several tasks involving domestic robot systems deployed in a real apartment, while interacting with humans living in the apartment.

Local organiser: Institute for Systems and Robotics, Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon.

Target audience
All age ranges, young and adult audience. The venue has a small capacity, so the number of places available is limited.

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

ERL Emergency / TRADR Summer School
Show details
Camps/Schools , ERL Emergency
The ERL Emergency/TRADR Summer School 2016 on Heterogeneity in Robotics Systems is designed as a five-day course to provide participants with a full overview and hands-on experience with multi-domain (ground, water, air) real robotic systems for deployment in disaster-response scenarios. The focus is on multi-modal heterogeneous mapping, semantic analysis and reasoning and (collaborative) planning under uncertainty.

Attendees will deepen their understanding of outdoor autonomous robotics, share ideas and experiences, and prepare themselves for field robotics competitions.

The summer school is jointly organised by ERL Emergency Robots (www.robotics-league.eu) and TRADR (www.tradr-project.eu) EU Horizon 2020 and FP7 projects, respectively.

Local organisers: University of Oulu, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), ETH Zurich and the University of the West of England, Bristol

Target audience
Participants included undergraduate students, Masters and PhD students, postdocs, researchers from universities/organisations and engineers from industry companies around the world.
