Support Action for a Targeted Intelligent Autonomous Robotics Contest: The European Roboathlon

Acronym:

EURATHLON

Funding:

EC-FP7

Duration:

01/2013 – 12/2015

Abstract

EURATHLON is an outdoor robotics competition, which invites 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. Leading up to this 'grand challenge' in 2015, there are directly related land and underwater robot competitions in 2013 and 2014, respectively.

The EURATHLON competitions are supported by annual workshops. In parallel there is an open process of developing benchmarks to allow comparison of different robots in the EURATHLON competitions. Linked public engagement activities connect EURATHLON with robotics research, industry and emergency services, as well as the general public. Attendance of spectators, press and media is welcomed. By targeting a specific and urgent need - intelligent robots for disaster-response - EURATHLON provides European robotics with a platform for challenging, extending and showcasing European cognitive robotics technologies.
