The European Robotics League is an innovative concept for robot
competitions which stems from its predecessor, the RoCKIn@Home competition,
and focuses on tasks that service robots execute in a real home environment.
The ERL is composed of multiple "Local Tournaments", held in different
research labs across Europe, with certified test beds, and a few
competitions as part of "Major Tournaments" such as RoboCup. Teams
participate in a minimum of two tournaments (Local and/or Major) per year
get scores based on their performances. Scores of the best two
participations in tournaments for each team are added and teams are ranked
based on their cumulative score. Prizes for the top teams are awarded
during the next year’s European Robotics Forum (ERF).
