The ERL Emergency/TRADR Summer School 2016 on Heterogeneity in Robotics Systems was designed as a five-day course to provide participants with a full overview and hands-on experience with multi-domain (ground, water, air) real robotic systems for deployment in disaster-response scenarios. The focus was on multi-modal heterogeneous mapping, semantic analysis and reasoning and (collaborative) planning under uncertainty.
The Summer School took place from 22-26 August 2016 in Oulu (Finland) at the University of Oulu. Participants included undergraduate students, Masters and PhD students, postdocs, researchers from universities/organisations and engineers from industry companies around the world. Attendees deepened their understanding of outdoor autonomous robotics, could share ideas and experiences, and prepare themselves for field robotics competitions.
The summer school was jointly organised by ERL Emergency Robots (www.robotics-league.eu) and TRADR (www.tradr-project.eu) EU Horizon 2020 and FP7 projects, respectively.
