ETH Zurich

ETH Zurich is organizing the next edition of the Robotics Summer School from the 5th to 9th of July 2021, which will run in parallel to the ARCHE event.

This summer school offers lectures and hands-on tutorials to grasp the fundamental concepts that every roboticist around the world should possess.

Tutorials as well as hands-on sessions with cutting edge robotics platforms will take place at a dedicated education and training center for search and rescue. Attendees will get the opportunity to team up with each other and program a (semi)-autonomous rough-terrain UGV, to extensively test it in a variety of environments, and finally to challenge colleagues in a competition.

In parallel to 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.

All summer school participants will get the opportunity to attend the ETH Robotics Symposium on 2nd of July, where leading researchers from across the world will share their experiences, results, and views on the different fields of robotics.

The number of participants is restricted to max 50 applicants to be selected on the basis of curriculum, motivation letter and diversity. Master Students and early stage Ph.D. students are encouraged to apply.
