  1. 1. Robotic Competitions Dr. Frank E. Schneider Dep. Head of FKIE R&D military robotics Head of the European Robotics Group Head of the European Robot Trial (ELROB) Head of the EU FP7 Eurathlon 2013 NATO Chair of the RTG "Standards Promoting Interoperability for Coalition UGVs“ © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034!
  2. 2. W do we need competitions? - R hy eality check! User “needs” and reality R&D thinking and reality © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 2
  3. 3. International R obotic Challenges DARPA 1. Grand Challenge 2004 2. Grand Challenge 2005 3. Urban Challenge 2007 4. Robotics Challenge 2012 UK MoD 1. UK MoD Grand Challenge 2008 AU MoD (US sponsored) 1. Multi Autonomous Ground-robotic International Challenge (MAGIC 2010) © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 3
  4. 4. European Robotic Challenges ELROB 1., 3., 5., 7., 9. Military European Land Robot Trials 2006-2014 2., 4., 6. Civil European Land Robot Trials 20072011 EURATHLON (EU/ FP7) EC 1. European Robotics Athlon 2013(-2015) There is more: Robotour, Field Robot Event, Robofest, RoboCup Rescue, etc. pp. © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 4
  5. 5. European Robotic Challenge - ELROB ELROB 1., 3., 5., 7., 9. Military European Land Robot Trials 2006-2014 2., 4., 6. Civil European Land Robot Trials 20072011 © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 5
  6. 6. W hat is ELROB? – A Trial!  Demonstrate and compare the capabilities of unmanned systems in realistic scenarios and terrains.  Trials are close to today’s typical deployment scenarios.  Scenarios are developed in co-operation with/by the users.  Target audience: emergency services, border patrol, special forces, police, fire brigades, civil protection agencies and military © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 6
  7. 7. 7 Aims of ELROB Test and compare available robot platforms and software  in “true” outdoor / off-road environments  under difficult constraints  (bad) weather  day and night  mostly no radio/GPS reception  limited trial time  introduce standards into the field of competitors We use the ELROB to guide R&D into the right direction! © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034!
  8. 8. European Robotics Athlon EURATHLON (EU/ FP7) EC 1. European Robotics Athlon 2013(-2015) © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 8
  9. 9. W hat is Eurathlon? – An attempt!  Provide real-world robotics challenges that will test the intelligence and autonomy of outdoor robots in demanding mock disaster-response scenarios.  2013: Land systems, 2014 Sea systems and 2015 Land/Sea/Air combined  Additional workshops  Possible target audience: emergency services, fire brigades, and civil protection agencies  Eurathlon is a Coordination and Support action! © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 9
  10. 10. 10 Aims of Eurathlon  Speed-up the progress towards practical, useable real-world intelligent autonomous robots, through competitions  Identify possible benchmarks  Involve the public (dissemination)  Generate data-sets  Look on standards © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034!
  11. 11. “European” Challenges (FP7 and H2020) This is slide is m eant to be provocative! It is not explicitly refering to E ATH ON! UR L  There is a vast number of (uncorrelated) projects  RockIn  Eurathlon  EuRoC  ICARUS, DARIUS  ….  euRobotics AISBL (EURON, EUROP), EUCog, euROBOTICS, ECHORD  The process of building a consortium and writing a proposal are nebulous  The overall “goals” seem very vague  The involvement of real users is often weak  The involvement of industry gives the impression of (hidden) subvention  The allowed level of abstraction from the real world is often to large © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! 11
  12. 12. Lessons (to be) learned? 1. 12 Real world oriented competitions • No serious abstractions from real deployment scenario 1. Clear and straight rules, no hidden agendas, one addressee 2. Reward for the teams • Prize money • R&D grants • Student support 1. Sponsoring 2. Standardization • Hardware & Software • Common Platforms and Payload-Carriers • Common Shared Datasets (CSDS) 1. Stringent involvement of users and industry 2. Clear way ahead, What will be done with & who will be using the results? © Fraunhofer FKIE Right to use and protected according to DIN 34 / ISO 16016 / VG 95034! !
