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.

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.

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).
