TRADR is a European Project developing and deploying technology for human-robot teaming for robot-assisted disaster response.
It is on the forefront of such efforts in Europe. The Technology Day will show our achievements and share insights gained during the 4 years of the project, including our experience from the TRADR deployment in Amatrice, Italy, shortly after the earthquake in 2016, as well as the industrial use case experiments carried out in 2016 in Dortmund and in 2017 in Rotterdam.
The program will consist of presentations and posters of TRADR scientific results and end-user experience with using robots, practical demonstration of the TRADR integrated system and a panel discussion.
The participants will have an opportunity to make contacts with experts within and outside the TRADR project.
