ELROB 2009 - European Land-Robot Trial
Robotics in security domains, fire brigades, civil protection and disaster control
The "European Land-Robot Trial (ELROB)" is organised in order to provide an overview of the European state-of-the-art in the field of UGVs/UAVs with focus on short-term realizable robot systems. ELROB is explicitly designed to assess current technology to solve problems at hand, using whatever strategy to achieve it. ELROB is presenting cutting edge robotics technology, applied to real world applications, that can save lives now and shape the direction of research for the short and medium term. With regard to available capabilities, the organisers seek to promote innovative technical approaches that will enable the operation of unmanned vehicles.
The scenarios were:
- Reconnaissance and surveillance
- Transport - Mule
- Camp security
- Autonomous navigation
Keep in mind that the theme of ELROB still is:
- ELROB is conducted to provide an overview of the European state-of-the-art in the field of unmanned vehicles with focus on short-term realisable robot systems!
- ELROB is explicitly designed to assess current technology to solve real world problems at hand!
- ELROB in addition is an opportunity to bring together users, researchers and industry to build a community!
