European Robotics Forum 2019

Members of the AeRoTwin project team went to Bucharest, Romania, from 19 to 24 March, to take part in the European Robotics Forum 2019. There they attended lectures and workshops, presented their work and some of the robots they work on, and brought their work closer to the public and the robotics community. Project team members who went to ERF2019 representing their institutions and AeRoTwin are the following: Mirko Kovac (Imperial College London), Anibal Ollero (University of Seville), Zdenko Kovačić, Matko Orsag, Ivana Mikolić, Antun Ivanović, Barbara Arbanas and Bruno Marić (UNIZG-FER LARICS). The event's programme can be found here.

LARICS members were at the robotics@fer.hr booth, talking about the brand and the laboratories. They brought some of the laboratories' robots representative of their work: the MORUS unmanned aerial vehicle, an aPad, two aMussels, a Pioneer mobile robot and a Coptervorx drone, while Mirko Kovac and Anibal Ollero focused on aerial robotics and held lectures on the topic.

During the event, eu Robotics announced that LARICS was the ERL Emergency Service Robots Best Team of Season 2018/2019, which is a confirmation of their hard work and what they've learned since the beginning of the AeRoTwin project, e.g. during their first practical training.
