EuroCore repository – a vehicle for transferability in Robotics

Track: Regulation and Standardisation

Date and Time: 15 Mar 2024 14:50-16:10

Organisers: Uwe Köckemann, Michael Beetz, Rebecca Schedl-Warpup, Giang Hoang Nguyen

Main questions to be answered: What are the software tools and common infrastructure needed for implementing transferable robotic solutions?

Workshop Description: The main vehicle intended for transfer within the euROBIN project is the EuroCore repository. It will be built on the AI on Demand Platform funded by the EC and it is intended to become a tool used by the entire robotics community. It is also the central tool used to involve the upcoming cascade funding partners. Besides an infrastructure to host and curate a list of open source code, data and documentation, EuroCore will also provide an infrastructure. Building upon ROS and Open Ease, which to allow practical transfer of models and methods on robot systems. The workshop will present the general intent and structure of the EuroCore and will go into practical implementation aspects for integrating transferable solutions on different robot systems. The workshop will have the very practical goal of discussing the concepts and infrastructure for the hackathon on transferable robotics which will be held at the Humanoids Conference in Nov. 2024 in Nancy.

Intended Outcome: Workshop expected to create a roadmap or white paper, Information about community involvement and services offered (e.g. DIHs, open calls, platforms, …)

Approach: – Presentation of the EuroCore concept based on the AI on Demand Platform by Uwe Köckemann. – Presentation of the Virtual Research Building concept by Michael Beetz. – Discussion in the form of a brainwalk to collect ideas and involve the community.
