EUROBENCH is creating the first benchmarking framework for robotic testing in Europe, composed of two testing facilities and one benchmarking software. This survey wants to know how EUROBENCH can meet YOUR needs. Please dedicate 3 minutes to this. YOUR OPINION IS REALLY IMPORTANT to make EUROBENCH a concrete and useful tool to developers and users.

EUROBENCH will offer up to 60k€ to anyone interested in trying these testing tools, through the 2nd EUROBENCH Open Call (June 2020). Don't miss the opportunity to let us know your interest in participating!

5. What performance indicators do you consider important? *
1 (not important)
3 (neutral / no opinion)
5 (very important)
Symmetry of movement
Energy efficiency/Endurance
Stability (ability of the system to not fall or to not alter the stability of the user)
Perform human-like kinematics
Perform human-like kinetics
Versatility (adaptability to different tasks, e.g. transitions between different terrains)
Ergonomics (adaptability to user morphology)
Safety of interaction with human users
Ability to perceive the environment/user intention (specify if needed)
Physiological effects on the user(e.g. cognitive effort, comfort)
Ability to make autonomous decisions (specify if possible)
Coordination between limbs
Dependability: ability to minimize (impacts of) failures
Would you add any additional item to the previous list?
6. The ideal benchmarking framework should:
1 (not important)
3 (neutral / no opinion)
5 (definitely yes)
Provide one physical site (e.g. a facility) to assess the robot under all applicable conditions
Automatically score the performance of the robot
Suggest how to improve the performance of the robot (e.g. by identifying its critical points)
Compare the robot with respect to the available systems in the market/literature
Compare the robot with human performance
Provide guidelines for robot purchasing (e.g. indicate the most suitable robot for a specific user)
Provide guidelines to replicate tests in any laboratory setting
Provide a "certification mark" on the robot performance according to accepted standards
Help to adapt/customize the robot to a specific user/usage
Clear selection
