Metrological Evaluation and Testing of Robots in International Competitions (METRICS)

The main objective of METRICS is to organise challenge-led robotics competitions as clear, rigorous and effective evaluation campaigns for the four priority areas, namely healthcare, agile production, inspection and maintenance and agri-food. These competitions are a cornerstone for the effective design, manufacture, deployment and modification of robotic systems. To this end, METRICS will design metrology-grade methods for robotics evaluation, maximise the take-up of the evaluation and benchmarking tools, ensure the industrial relevance of challenge-led competitions, attract industrial stakeholders, academics and the general public to competitions, maximise the compliance of robots with ethical, legal, social, economic requirements, help to fill the normative gap for intelligent robotic systems by designing evaluation plans as representative standards, and structure the European robotics community around competitions in the four PAs and ensure its sustainability.
