This week, for European Robotics Week 2014, 7 mobile robots from Europe (6 from the STRANDS EU project) are competing in a robot marathon trying to complete the longest single autonomous run during the 5 days. This is building on a similar event last year where the winner covered 45km in about 48 hours.
The robot marathon started today, and you can follow the progress of the participants at http://strands-project.eu/marathon.html or search for #RobotMarathon on Twitter (where many of the robots are posting updates on their progress).
