Dear friends and colleagues,
after the finale of the European Robotics League (ERL)  Emergency 2016-2017 season, culminated with the multi-domain competition held at the Piombino (Italy) power plant in September 2017, we are ready to start a new exciting season of the Emergency Robots league.
We are pleased to inform you that the next ERL Emergency Robots event will be held in La Spezia, Italy, at CMRE premises from 14 to 20 July, 2018.
Cooperative teams of land and sea (underwater) robots will be challenged to accomplish search and rescue tasks in a disaster response scenario.
A sea water basin (the usual scenario of the Student Autonomous Underwater Competition-Europe<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.sauc-2Deurope.org_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=VZ0Xt_fAjbXdk5MeWcjnG4S38b4RgJCcDZ407wtx78k&s=XJ1YPPv48hR2HfhjGVetw17hjEf8WrCidP5W7CEAGR0&e=>) will host the marine part of the competition. The docks, a rough outdoor area with trees and bushes and a large building will be the places where land robots will be called to operate.
This time teams have to face a simulated yacht accident. A wrong maneuver of the yacht has damaged the pier area, causing fires, damages to gas pipes and explosions.
Some of the tasks that will be proposed are:
-          underwater pipes and structure inspection;
-          underwater wall survey;
-          underwater of 15kHz acoustic pinger localization;
-          underwater mannequin detection;
-          localization of a mannequin and rubble removal in the land area;
-          stopping the fire;
and other.
For scenarios and details please see the website: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__sites.google.com_site_erlemergency2018_&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=VZ0Xt_fAjbXdk5MeWcjnG4S38b4RgJCcDZ407wtx78k&s=0ZGkqoCtrfRQlj12CFteds6uvCJvbAvpuOBg_qHasDg&e= that includes the call for participation.
The first deadline for team registration is 11 May 2018.

The European Robotics League:
The European Robotics League (ERL) is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Programme for research, in the framework of SciRoc<https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.eu-2Drobotics.net_robotics-5Fleague_about_sciroc_index.html&d=DwIFAw&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=VZ0Xt_fAjbXdk5MeWcjnG4S38b4RgJCcDZ407wtx78k&s=RTc_6jpoi_KkqAeVmB7sPmlVxV-eFw30qvX4098u0iQ&e=> project (grant agreement n° 780086) coordinated by the University of the West of England and supported by SPARC.
The ERL local and major tournaments are based in Europe and are open to international participation. Three leagues are present, each one addressing one vibrant field of robotics: Industry, Service and Emergency Robots. Competitors will engage in annual local tournaments organised by a consortium of Europe´s most prestigious robotics institutes. Biennial major tournaments will be held in Smart Cities, where robots from all three categories will come together to interact with the smart infrastructure in familiar urban settings.


Looking forward to meeting you at the ERL Emergency Robots in July!
Sincerely,
Gabriele Ferri
