METRICS brings together 17 partners, all expert in robotics competition and metrology, with highly complementary testing facilities and networks in the four priority areas.This experienced consortium ensures that METRICS benefits from the feedback of past and current competitions and projects and is highly complementary with European initiatives and networks.
International experts in metrology and robotics competitions
METRICS Advisory Board brings together world-renown experts in the field of metrology and robotics competitions. The Advisory Board consists of
- the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST),
represented by Joseph Falco,
- and of the Queensland University of Technology (QUT),
represented by Niko Suenderhauf.
The members of the Advisory Board have extensive and long-standing experience in organising competitions in robotics (DARPA Robotics Challenge, Robotic Grasping and Manipulation Competition, Unmanned Aerial Systems Flight and Payload Challenge, etc.) and AI (Robotic Vision Challenges).
Robotics Stakeholders Board
Key European robotics stakeholders
Robotics Stakeholders Board brings together key actors in the robotics domain in Europe who have strong networks and support METRICS project.
Robotics Stakeholders Board includes key European robotics stakeholders (e.g. clusters – Cap Digital, Systematic, RobAgri, Innovin, Vitagora; RTO & Universities – Universitat Jaume I, Imperial College, Equipex-Robotex, CTIFL, etc.).
Robotics Stakeholders Board will support the organisation of METRICS competitions and support the dissemination of METRICS results. Robotics Stakeholders Board will support the structuring the European robotics community around the organisation of competitions.
YOU CAN BE PART OF IT: PARTNERSHIPS FOR THE ORGANISATION OF EUROPEAN ROBOTICS
METRICS competitions can only be meaningful is they are relevant to industry and public stakeholders. Whilst METRICS will provide the framework and some public funding to organize, evaluate and disseminate the results of the competitions, we are looking for private partners willing to help us drive the competition. This includes financial contributions through sponsorship as well as an active involvement in the definition of the scenarios, evaluation criteria and judging of the competitions.
