Upcoming Events

RPAS-CivOps - Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems Civil Operations Conference

An international conference for the RPAS operators community focusing on the European Commission’s European RPAS Roadmap, national & European regulatory matters, civil RPAS operational matters, current & future applications [commercial, non-commercial (corporate, governmental non-military)], current bottlenecks, technical and performance requirements, system & sub- system developments, aerial work customer requirements, novel operations, operational experience & lessons learned.

Panel discussions will permit active interaction between panel members and the audience. The presentations and panel topics will broaden the awareness of current and potential RPAS operators, their current & potential customers, regulatory authorities & manufacturers.

HUDEM2014 - Humanitarian Demining Symposium

The symposium will review and discuss the available technologies, their limitations, their adaptability to different environmental conditions for humanitarian demining (including the detection of sub-munitions) and discuss the development efforts to automate some tasks related to de-mining / detection / interventions processes wherever possible through the use of Robotics Systems and other Technologies

EUSAR2014 - First European Unmanned Search and Rescue End-Users' Conference

The ICARUS and DARIUS projects are happy to invite you to the first European Unmanned Search and Rescue End Users Conference. ICARUSand DARIUSare two large-scale EU-funded Research and Development projects. The aim of these projects is to improve the speed, efficiency and safety of Search and Rescue operations through the use of unmanned vehicles, novel sensors and interoperable Command and Control tools. The objective of this conference is to discuss how your operational requirementscan be fulfilled by the latest technological advances and to participate in live demonstrations.

 

Past Events

SSRR2013 - 11th IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics

The 11th anniversary of the IEEE International Symposium on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics will continue its tradition of attracting cutting-edge papers in the theory and practice of robots for rapid and secure inspection of critical infrastructure, travelers, luggage, and paces; disaster response and recovery; humanitarian demining, disaster mitigation and recovery; detection of chemical, biological and radiological risks and operations in these dangerous sites.

RISE 2013 - Robotics for Risky Environment - Extreme Robotics

Robotics solutions properly sized with suitable modularized mechanized structure and well adapted to local conditions of unstructured, sometimes unknown fields can greatly improve the safety and the security of personnel as well as work efficiency, productivity and flexibility. Solving this problem presents challenges in robotic mechanics and mobility, sensors and sensor fusion, autonomous or semi autonomous navigation and machine intelligence. The workshop will review and discuss the available risky intervention/environmental surveillance technologies, sometimes applied in extreme conditions, along with their limitations and discusses the development efforts to automate tasks

CLAWAR 2013 - 16th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots and the Support Technologies for Mobile Machines

CLAWAR is a condensation of climbing and walking robots. The core areas are climbing, walking and running robots and the technologies that support them. We interpret that to include wheeled and tracked platforms, in addition to legged machines. Supporting technologies include all the means that robots use to sense, model, and navigate through their environments and, of course, actuation and control technologies. Human interaction, including exoskeletons, prostheses and orthoses as well as service robots forms an increasingly active and important pertinent area.

HFR 2012

The growing need to automate daily tasks, combined with new robot technologies, is driving the development of human-friendly robots, i.e., safe and dependable machines, operating in the close vicinity to humans or directly interacting with them in a wide range of domains. The technological shift from classical industrial robots, which are safely kept away from humans in cages, to robots, which are used in close collaboration with humans, is facing major challenges that need to be overcome.

The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers so to share knowledge on design, control, safety and ethical issues, concerning the introduction of robots into everyday life.
