Within the euRobotics AISBL, several “Topic Groups” are being created (since late March 2013), as community-driven instruments to coordinate the activities in specific sub-domains of robotics. The objective of a Topic Group is to support the launch of “project proposals” by members of the European robotics community (be they members of euRobotics AISBL or not), but, first and foremost, to prepare the roadmap and project Calls that precede such proposals.

The Topic Group represented on this web site deals with robotics applied to Logistic and Transport of freights Domain.

The Topic Group initial named was “Topic Group on Logistics and Transport of freights ”, abbreviated “ROB4LOG”.
In 2016, the name of the Topic Group changed to “Logistics and Transport”.
