EURATHLON outdoor robotics competition

February 24, 2013

Technik_03
EURATHLON is a new outdoor robotics competition, which will invite teams to test the intelligence and autonomy of their robots in realistic mock emergency-response scenarios. Inspired by the 2011 Fukushima accident, the EURATHLON competition will require a team of land, underwater and flying robots to work together to survey the scene, collect environmental data, and identify critical hazards. Linked public engagement activities will connect EURATHLON with robotics research, industry and emergency services, as well as the general public. By targeting a specific and urgent need, EURATHLON will provide European robotics with a platform for challenging, extending and showcasing European cognitive robotics technologies.

In 2013 the competition will focus on land based vehicles, in 2014 the competition addresses sea-based vehicles, and in 2015 it will be held as a joint land, sea and air event.

euRathlon 2013 will be held from 23-27 September in Berchtesgaden, Germany and is based on the previously successful ELROB competition. Deadline for the competition application is 1st March 2013!
