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
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.

The Cascade Evaluation Campaign will run as a first stage of the RAMI competition for aerial robots where teams will develop and test their algorithms on datasets provided by CATEC. Then, the teams with the best performances will be allowed to participate in the field evaluation campaign, which will take place at the ICUAS 2023 conference venue in June 2023 in Warsaw, Poland.
The 2nd RAMI Marine Robots competition will challenge the Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) of participant teams to accomplish Inspection & Maintenance tasks set in the CMRE protected seawater basin. AUVs will require perception, manipulation, adaptive mission planning and autonomous navigation skills to be successful.
ICRA 2023 ADAPT Human-Robot Collaborative Assembly Challenge
The challenge aims at addressing typical dexterous robot manipulation tasks (e.g., picking of parts and precision placement, parts insertion) of parts involving intuitive, multi-modal interfaces and human communication channels (e.g., human demonstration by hand-guiding).
The next round of the ADAPT Cascade Campaign is planned to be held in July – September 2023.
Detailed information will be published soon.
The next HEART-MET Cascade Competition is planned to be held in June-August, 2023.
Detailed info about the competition is coming soon.
