Europe’s roadmap for robotics released its latest version on 2 December. The MAR is updated annually as priorities, technologies and strategic developments shape European research development and innovation. This version of the MAR relates to the Horizon 2020 robotics work programme defined for the 2017 call in ICT25, ICT 27 & ICT-28.

The MAR is the result of community input, mostly from Topic Groups, and a transparent process to identify priorities. The MAR is updated at each Horizon 2020 Call. Readers are encouraged to engage with this process and to contribute their knowledge to the content of this document. It will then reflect and sustain a live discourse on the current state of robotics technology. This can be done by joining euRobotics and by contributing to the associated Topic Groups.

It contains the following changes from the previous MAR release:

Introduction

This section remains substantially unchanged from the ICT-2016 version except for the addition of a brief overview of ICT-25, 27 & 28.

Domains

Since there is no Domain priority specified in ICT-2016 & ICT-2017 all of the Domain sections remain as an illustration of the breadth of robotics application. Some minor updating has taken place to the lists of current projects.

Two additional sub-domain sections have been added: Construction Robotics, Laboratory Robotics.

Robot Categories

The Robot Categories section remains unchanged from the ICT-2016 version.

Abilities

The Ability section remains unchanged from the ICT-2016 version.

Technologies

The technology section contains some additions to the Navigation section.

Innovation

The Innovation section on Standards has been updated to reflect changes in standards since the 2015 MAR publication.
