The European Robotics League announces tournament dates for season 2017-2018

The European Robotics League (ERL) announces the tournament dates for the new season 2017-2018.  The ERL brings a common framework for two indoor robotics competitions, ERL Industrial Robots and ERL Service Robots and one outdoor robotics competition, ERL Emergency Robots.  The three competitions are designed to target three clear objectives:  the European societal challenge of an aging population, the strengthening of the European robotics industry and the use of autonomous systems for emergency response.

The ERL local and major tournaments are based in Europe and are open to international participation from Universities, Research labs, Industry and/or end-users.

There are eight tournaments already confirmed for this season 2017-2018 and new ones are expected to be confirmed in the next months.
