International Advanced Robotics Programme


Robotics for Risky Interventions and Surveillance of the Environment


Robotics solutions properly sized with suitable modularized mechanized structure and well adapted to local conditions of  unstructured, sometimes unknown fields can greatly improve the safety  and the security of personnel as well as work efficiency, productivity and flexibility. Solving this problem presents challenges in robotic mechanics and mobility, sensors and sensor fusion, autonomous or semi autonomous navigation and machine intelligence.

The IARP workshops RISE review and discuss the available risky intervention/environmental surveillance technologies along with their limitations and discusses the development efforts to automate tasks related to detection / decontamination / neutralization process wherever possible through robotization. Specific topics include but are not limited to:

                Inspection of fire or crisis grounds

        CBRN-E  threats

                Map building and reconstruction

        Networked crisis management tools

        Human-Machine Interfaces

        Remote controlled, semi-autonomous, autonomous

        robot navigation

       Victim Detection

        Multi-robot cooperation

        Swarm of robots

       Crisis Management tools

NEXT IARP WS  RISE'2017, combined with the ICI Project ECHEC (www.ici-belgium.be) and the CLAWAR Association:16-17 March 2017
