Winners of the European Robotics League (ERL) 2018

The ERL Service Robotics Winners

An exciting Season of the European Robotics League (ERL) came to an end at the European Robotics Forum in Tampere (Finland), where we all discovered who were the TBMs winners! The ERL Awards Ceremony was celebrated during the Gala Dinner in front of the whole European robotics community, and had a very special guest on stage: a TIAGo dressed in the traditional Finnish way!

Representatives of all ERL Categories (Industry, Emergency and Service) gave the awards to the teams that scored more points in each Task Benchmark at the overall classification, using their best two participations in tournaments.

As Sponsors of the ERL SR Competition, PAL Robotics CEO, and also euRobotics Board Director, Mr. Ferro, praised the efforts that all the teams put in performances that gave such amazing results, highlighting how important are the developments in the Service Robotics to enhance people’s quality of life.

From PAL Robotics we want to congratulate the five winner teams of the Service Robotics Category. We were lucky enough to see their impressive performance during the ERL SR Local Tournament that we hosted in Barcelona, where they were all participating – and most of them with a TIAGo robot!
