Innovative technology is not an end in itself – it is supposed to be applied to real industry needs to generate an economical outcome.
Unfortunately, it is not always obvious, in which ways or in which use cases technologies could be beneficial. Therefore, it is important to show other companies the advantages of the technology provided and to demonstrate how the technology could address real challenges in industry.
For this purpose, it is conducive to gain knowledge about the pain points of end users and to get access to the knowledge of system integrators and other stake-holders regarding possible applications of the technology.
The EuRoC Challenge provides a stimulating environment as it brings together research experts, technology developers, system integrators and end users to work on challenging use cases and to compete with other teams to provide best in class solutions.
Hence, the EuRoC is seeking technology developers that are interested in providing innovative technologies and searching for possible applications in the manufacturing field.
It provides 3 different challenge contexts in which these technologies could be applied:
This call for technology developers is related to the EU-funded Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) project EuRoC (European Robotic Challenges, Grant Agreement Number 608849):
