Real Robots, Real Environments
Zurich, Switzerland, 27 June – 01 July 2019
Robotics has become one of the biggest fields of education and research worldwide. The newly opened Center for Robotics at ETH Zurich is committed to provide continued education and training to the young generations of researchers and practitioners. This summer school offers lectures and hands-on tutorials to grasp the fundamental concepts that every roboticist around the world should possess.
At the start, all summer school participants will get the opportunity to attend the two-day ETH Robotics symposium, where leading researchers from across the world will share their experiences, results, and views on the different fields of robotics.
After the symposium, the tutorials and hands-on sessions will start at a dedicated education and training center for search and rescue. You will get the opportunity to program a (semi)-autonomous rough-terrain UGV, to extensively test it in a variety of environments, and finally to challenge your colleagues in a Search and Rescue competition.
On the last official day of the summer school, a number of research teams from Switzerland and around Europe will join the training site for the week-long exercise sessions ARCHE (Advanced Robotic Capabilities for Hazardous Environments). Legged robots, teleoperated excavators, amphibious vehicles, UAVs and many other robots will be deployed in collapsed, burning, or flooded buildings and specialists from different organizations will share their knowledge.
The participants of the summer school have the opportunity to extend their stay and attend ARCHE during this week or to continue developing on their own robots. ARCHE will end on Saturday, July 6th with a public event.
