euRathlon is a new outdoor robotics competition that invites teams to test the intelligence and autonomy of their robots in realistic and demanding mock emergency-response scenarios inspired by the Fukushima accident.
A competition for land-based vehicles in 2013 will be followed by one for underwater robots in 2014 with the final competition in 2015 requiring a team of terrestrial, marine and aerial robots to work collaboratively to survey the scene, collect environmental data and identify critical hazards.
euRathlon 2013 will be held 23rd-27th September in Berchtesgaden, Germany based on the successful ELROB competition
