AI evaluation campaigns during robotics competitions: the METRICS paradigm

The H2020 METRICS project (2020-2023) organizes competitions in four application areas (Healthcare, Infrastructure Inspection and Maintenance, Agri-Food, and Agile Production) relying on both physical testing facilities (field evaluation campaign) and virtual testing facilities (data-based evaluation campaign) to mobilize, in addition to the European robotics community, the artificial intelligence one. This article presents this approach and pave the way for a new robotics and artificial intelligence competition paradigm.
