European Robotics League - Service Robots
Season 2017-2018

Local Tournament
Bristol, UK
Date: 26-30 June 2017

The European Robotics League is an innovative concept for robot competitions which stems from its predecessor, the RoCKIn@Home competition, and focuses on tasks that service robots execute in a real home environment. The ERL is composed of multiple "Local tournaments", held in different research labs across Europe, with certified test beds, and a few competitions as part of "Major tournaments" such as RoboCup. 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).

We are pleased to announce the first local tournament on the ERL Service Robots challenge to be held at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) in Bristol, UK. The BRL is a collaborative partnership between the University of the West of England and the University of Bristol. The tournament will be hosted in the BRL’s Personalised Assisted Living Studio which was recently certified for use as an ERL Service Robots testbed.
