Project description

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.
