Dear roboticist,

we cordially invite you to participate in the EURATHLON 2013.

EURATHLON is a new robot competition supported by the European Commission 
in the FP7.

The vision of EURATHLON is to provide real-world robotics challenges that 
will test the intelligence and autonomy of outdoor/off-road robots in 
demanding disaster-response scenarios.

Inspired by the Fukushima disaster we envision a competition that requires 
autonomous flying, land and underwater robots acting together to survey the 
disaster, collect environmental data, and identify critical hazards.

The scenarios are
- Reconnaissance and surveillance in urban structures (USAR)
- Mobile manipulation for handling hazardous material
- Search and rescue in a smoke filled underground structure
- Autonomous navigation using GPS, GLONASS and GALILEO
- Bomb disposal (EOR/EOD/IEDD/CIED)

We would be happy to welcome you at the 23.-27. September in Berchtesgaden!

Kind regards
Frank E. Schneider
