ERL Consumer Functionalities

Object Perception

The objective of this functionality benchmark is to assess the capabilities of a robot in processing sensor data in order to extract information about observed objects from a given list. It requires the robot to detect the object’s presence, estimate their class, identity and location.


This functionality benchmark assesses the robot’s capability to traverse a sequence of way points without colliding with obstacles and reaching its target within reasonable time.

Speech Understanding

This functionality benchmark aims at evaluating the ability of a robot to understand speech commands that a user gives in a home environment. A list of commands will be selected among the set of predefined recognizable commands (i.e. commands that the robot should be able to recognize within the tasks of the competition or in similar situations).
