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!
