The ERL Emergency Robots 2017 (#ERLemergency2017) major tournament in Piombino, Italy, gathered 130 participants from 16 universities and companies from 8 European countries. Participating teams designed robots able to bring the first relief to survivors in disaster-response scenarios. The #ERLemergency2017 scenarios were inspired by the Fukushima 2011 nuclear accident. The robotics competition took place from 15-23 September 2017 at Enel’s Torre del Sale, and saw sea, land and air robots collaborating.

Teams worked very hard during the practice and competition days:

Robots could be found also in the exhibition area:

The competition site benefitted from the visit of some personalities:

Since they are the new generation of roboticists, children were not forgotten either: they enjoyed the free classes given by Scuola di Robotica.

At the Piombino Castle, the public attended more #robotics presentations.

After days of hard work, passion and enjoyment, the winners of the Grand challenge were announced:
