Short Term Visit 1

During the ERL Local Emergency Tournament in Seville, LARICS Project Manager and AeRoTwin Project Coordinator Ivana Mikolić met with project partner CTA Aerospace Technical Officer Silvia de los Santos and consultant Marta Macías for the first AeRoTwin Short Term Visit, where she learned about the CTA model of innovation cluster and technological transfer. Ivana, Silvia and Marta visited the CTA facilities, talked to Silvia about their business and research strategies, and found out more about their equipment, projects etc. and visited the Advanced Center for Aerospace Technologies (CATEC). This was the first in a line of short term management-oriented visits which will help LARICS improve the laboratory's R&D capacities, as is the goal of the AeRoTwin project.

LARICS team at the ERL Emergency 2019

This month, the LARICS team will be going to Seville, Spain, to take part in the European Robotics League Emergency Local Tournament 2019! Their team has been pre-selected for this competitive and interesting event, which means that they will have to combine their knowledge of ground and aerial robots to make them work together. They will have to be as autonomous as possible, capable of coordinating through both indoor and outdoor environments and will have to perform specific advanced tasks. LARICS members are working very hard for this competition and are looking forward to taking part in it!
