The Event:

The event consists of single-tracked lectures and hands-on practical demonstration and development sessions, lead by world class researchers, developers and responders. Attendees with have the opportunity to better understand the challenges and capabilities in this domain and network with their peers, responders and industry. The DHS-NISTASTM International Standard Test Methods for Response Robots (E54.08.01) will form the common language by which students, researchers, responders, manufacturers and government communicate their capabilities and requirements.

The Organisations:

This event is sponsored by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society under the RAS Technical Education Program. It will be run by the Curtin University Department of Computing with the support of the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical and Computer Engineering, and in collaboration with Robolit LLC, the Intelligent Systems Division of the US National Institute of Standards and Technology, and the International RoboCup Federation through the RoboCupRescue Robot League. Practical sessions will be held in collaboration with the Perth Artifactory, Perth’s very own HackerSpace.
