1 November, 2016 Posted by tradr_admin

Team members of TRADR received the Best Late Breaking Report Award at the International Symposium on Safety, Security and Rescue Robotics (SSRR) 2016 for their work titled “3D Localization, Mapping and Path Planning for Search and Rescue Operations”. The report issued from a collaboration with the Alcor Lab from the Sapienza University of Rome and presented results obtained at the third Joint Exercise of the FP7 TRADR project.

 

Third TRADR Evaluation Exercise

29 October, 2016 Posted by tradr_admin

The yearly TRADR Evaluation exercise (T-Eval) took place end October 2016 in Dortmund, Germany. The location was an old coal-fired power plant `Knepper’ in Dortmund, a large industrial complex which offered multiple stories, obstacles and rubble and allowed for indoor UAV flying.

 

 

Together with end-users from the fire department of the city of Dortmund, a number of disaster response exercises were enacted in which the TRADR system was used to provide robotic response.

Mission objectives included scanning of the environment and creation of maps enabling autonomous UGV navigation, multi-robot patrolling and searching for Points of Interest, such as smoke, fire and victims.

In addition, the robotic arm mounted on the UGVs was used to retrieve a chemical sample from the disaster environment. The exercises were successful and will contribute to a further improvement and refinement of the TRADR system in Year 4 of the project.

 

TRADR Technology Day, November 4th,Dortmund, Germany

22 September, 2016 Posted by tradr_admin

On behalf of the consortium of the European project TRADR (Long-Term Human-Robot Teaming for Robot Assisted Disaster Response) we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting a TRADR Technology Day organized by the Dortmund Fire Department.

Date:       04. November 2016

Time:       9:30 to 16:00

Venue:    Power Plant Knepper, Langenacker, 44357 Dortmund, Germany

Topics:   Robotics and AI technology use in disaster response: research, system development and practial experience

TRADR develops technology for human-robot teams to assist in disaster response efforts over multiple missions.
In this way, TRADR also enables the users to actively experience this technology and to become aware of its potential and current limitations, to in the end facilitate its uptake.

During the day we show the project achievements and share insights gained so far, including the experience from the TRADR deployment in Amatrice, Italy, shortly after the earthquake, and discuss future developments. The day is intended for a broad range of stakeholders including industry developing technology for robot-assisted disaster response and similar applications as well as the users of the technology such as rescuers and other responders.

Here you will find detailed information on the agenda and the location

If you are interested in participating or if you have further questions, please send an email to: industryday2016@dfki.de.

We thank you for your interest and look forward to welcoming you on November 4th.
