First International Cleaning Robots Contest
Robots are starting to have an impact on our daily lives, and enthusiasts are convinced that in a very short time Personal Robot Assistants will be as common as Personal Computers are today. This may be somewhat farfetched, but undoubtedly robotic technology has developed to such a stage that automation of many everyday tasks and operations is now possible.
One of the primary applications is robotic cleaning. The market for cleaning services in Europe alone is estimated to be US$ 50 billion per year, so there is no doubt of the economic potential of their automation.
The general objective of this contest is to bring together representatives from the cleaning industry and appliance manufacturers as well as young researchers, future customers and users, and draw their attention to an emerging technology.
