Leon@Home Testbed

Leon@Home is a Certified Testbed of the European Robotics League (ERL)

Leon@Home testbed main purpose is to benchmark service robots in a realistic home environment. Our testbed is made up by four parts: a mock-up apartment, a control zone with direct vision (glass wall) to the apartment, a small workshop and a larger development zone where researchers work.

Apartment

Leon@Home Testbed is located in the second floor of the Módulo de Investigación en Cibernética (Building for Research in Cybernetics) in the Vegazana Campus of the Universidad de León (Spain).

The apartment is a single bedroom mock-up home built in a 8m x 7m space. It is divided by 60cm high walls into a Kitchen, living room, bathroom and a bedroom. This is the

We offer three different motion capture systems for tracking your robots in the environment. Two of them are permanently install in the testbed area and the third one could be used under request:

  1. [KIO RTL] ground-truth system based on Ultra Wideband (UWB) technology
