The European Robotics League (ERL) is an innovative concept for robot competitions which stems from its predecessors, the euRathlon and RoCKIn competitions, and focuses on tasks that robots must execute in realistic environments. The ERL is composed of multiple Local Tournaments, held in different locations across Europe, and a few competitions as part of Major Tournaments. Teams participate in a minimum of two tournaments (Local and/or Major) per year and get scores based on their performances. Scores of the best two participations in tournaments for each team are added and teams are ranked based on their cumulative score. Prizes for the top teams are awarded during the next year’s European Robotics Forum (ERF). For more information about ERL, please visit

After the announcement of the first Local Tournament on the ERL Emergency Robots challenge in July 2018, focused on land and sea robotic systems, we are pleased to announce the second Local Tournament, to be held in February 2019 at the premises of the Advanced Center for Aerospace Technologies (CATEC) in Seville, Spain. It will include air and land robots working in an outdoor/indoor environment.

For more details about the challenges that the robotic systems will face, go to 'Competition'. Besides, there will be a special prize awarded by GSA for positioning solutions based on EGNOS and Galileo (please visit 'GSA Special Prize'), plus another special prize awarded by SESAR JU for demonstrating detect and avoid capabilities (please visit 'SESAR JU Special Prize').

The pre-selected teams can be found here.
