TRADR Technology Day
Robotics and AI technology Use in Disaster Response

Venue: Congrescentrum, Heijplaatstraat 17-23, 3089 JB Rotterdam,The Netherlands


TRADR develops technology for human-robot teams to assist in disaster response, using ground and air robots, in realistic missions spanning multiple days. We address a range of issues, from motion, navigation and mapping in complex changing environments, to human-robot team mission management support. First responders from the Italian Firecorps, the Firebrigade of the City of Dortmund in Germany and Gezamenlijke Brandweer in the Netherlands, are involved in the TRADR development cycle, from design to prototype testing. They provide input and feedback, experience the technology and become aware of its potential and current limitations, to in the end facilitate its uptake.
