The first ERL Smart CIty RObotic Challenge (the SciRoc challenge) will be held in Milton Keynes (UK) from September 16th to September 22nd, 2019.
The challenge in focus on smart shopping and will be divided into a series of episodes, each consisting in a task to be performed through addressing specific research challenges. During each episode, robots will have to cooperate continuously with the digital infrastructure of the smart shopping mall (the centre:MK) in order to accomplish their tasks. Teams are expected to participate in one or more episodes according to their research interests. For more details, click here.
The SciRoc’s consortium originally selected a set of episodes, now, thanks to the contribution of the teams, we have the final list of the five episodes that will be part of the competition. We solicit teams interested in taking part to the 1st SciRoc challenge to provide their input on the design and format of the competition by providing comments on the current drafts of the rulebooks of each episode.
