Name:The 2017 ERL Emergency Grand Challenge will be hosted in Piombino, Tuscany (Italy) on 15-23 September
Description:

Following the success of euRathlon 2015, the European Robotics League has entrusted the NATO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE), based in La Spezia (Italy), with the organization of the 2017 event devoted to the field of robots as a first response in emergency situations. Dates and venue of the competition were announced on 22 February during a press conference held by CMRE and Municipality.

ERL Emergency Robots is a civilian, outdoor robotics competition with a focus on realistic, multi-domain emergency response scenarios. For 9 days international teams of university students and industry experts will test their robots’ abilities to tackle more and more complex real-world situations in front of an international jury. For the first time robots will be also required to release autonomously emergency kits to simulate missing workers. Innovative solutions and remarkable levels of autonomy will be rewarded.

The European Robotics League is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Framework Programme for Research, under the RockEU2 project grant agreement n.688441.
