Science Platform Tools


The RoboCom++ community will pursue its ambitious objectives by building fundamental tools for research reproducibility and objective assessment (benchmarks, metrics, data sharing protocols, test platforms, standards).

This Working Group will analyse the platforms (hardware, software and middleware) where research hypotheses can be tested. Those platforms will allow to measure relative and absolute performance of robotic artefacts with statistically significant data. The WG will also foster experimentation of citizen-science platforms to achieve the wider involvement of the public.
