ERL Consumer Local Tournament, Edinburgh, UK, 2018 **** POSTPONED ****
Show details
The ERL Consumer Service Robots competition is holding a local tournament in Edinburgh from the 3rd to the 7th of December 2018 at the Heriot-Watt@Home Test Bed (Heriot-Watt University).

The "European Robotics League- Consumer Service Robots" is an innovative concept for robot competitions which stems from its predecessor, the RoCKIn@Home competition, and focuses on tasks that service robots execute in a real home environment. The ERL Consumer is composed of multiple "Local Tournaments", held in different research labs across Europe, with certified test beds, and a few "Major Tournaments". 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 participation 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).

This tournament is part of the ERL Season 2018-2019.

Open call for international teams interested on consumer service robotics.
A maximum of 3 teams will be selected from the received applications.
