We are now officially the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics Summer School!
The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (IEEE-RAS) is providing financial sponsorship to help us bring even more speakers and practical leaders in from around the world and to provide support to student members of the IEEE-RAS to attend this event.
Stay tuned for an update to the travel support and program! We have also updated the flyer to reflect the involvement of the IEEE. Please feel free to print it out and put it on your notice board (with the approval of whoever controls the notice board of course!). Download it here.
The DARPA Robotics Challenge has been announced! For those of you who haven't heard of it, think something along the lines of the RoboCupRescue Robot League, on super steroids, held over 3 years and with the might of DARPA behind it. See the links below for details:
We encourage teams thinking of competing in the DARPA Robotics Challenge to consider sending representatives to the SSRR Summer School, to see how they can leverage the RoboCupRescue Robot League experience. The two competitions have a lot in common and cross-pollination between the two events can only be a good thing for this vital research area as a whole.
