The METRICS project

Metrological Evaluation and Testing of Robots in International Competitions

The METRICS project, led by the National Metrology and Testing Laboratory (LNE), will organize robotics competitions in four priority areas identified by the European Commission: health, agri-food, inspection and maintenance of infrastructure and agile production.

4 competitions in 4 priority areas

HEART-MET competition

Inspection & Maintenance:
RAMI competition

ACRE competition

Agile Production:
ADAPT competition

Development of the Evaluation Framework

METRICS is designed to organise competitions as reproducible and objective evaluation campaigns and aims to structure in a sustainable way the European robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI) community around the four priority areas.

Consolidation of the European Robotics Community

Bringing together Unique European Competences in robotics and systems testing, METRICS also intends to build a sustainable structure to address the critical needs for evaluation of intelligent systems, which is an essential condition for their adoption.
