METRICS Competition - Call for Participation
The Healthcare Robotics Technologies - Metrified (HEART-MET) competition aims to address the growing age-related healthcare costs and quality of life problems, which threaten the stability and safety of the social security systems in charge of paying and maintaining high quality of healthcare. The competition addresses tasks that may directly impact the user's well-being, in a complex and unstructured domestic environment. This implies the use of a wide variety of functionalities, and requires a strict validation of the safety of the robotic behaviours. Assistive robots from different universities across Europe will compete to solve challenges. The robots are evaluated on functionalities such as object and person detection, activity and gesture recognition and object handover, which are required to complete tasks such as assessing the activity state of a person, delivery items to a person and preparing, etc. The competition is organised as part of the METRICS project.
