ELROB 2018 - European Land-Robot Trial
The event is kindly organized by:
International CBRNE Institute (ICI)
The ICI’s primary aim is to enhance CBRNE risk mitigation at regional, national and international levels, in particular through its two Knowledge Centres (CBRN&E).
The ICI engages in a wide range of CBRNE-related activities including developing and supporting academic and policy-related research, organising conferences, seminars and workshops, as well as professional development programmes for responders by means of courses and master classes.
The ICI was established in partnership with the municipality of Les Bons Villers, Belgium. The Royal Decree incorporating the ICI, as an independent International Non-Profit Organization, was granted on 30 August 2013. It was officially inaugurated on 5 October 2013 by Ms Agnes Marcaillou (Director of the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS)), Mr Wart (Mayor Les Bons Villers), Mr Mattmann & Mr Rothbacher (co-directors of HZS).
Fraunhofer Institute for Communication,
Information Processing and Ergonomics FKIE
The Cognitive Mobile Systems Department of the Fraunhofer Institute for Communication, Information Processing and Ergonomics FKIE is actively researching in the area of unmanned systems for more than 20 years. Our main expertise is the development and evaluation of complex human-robot systems. The main focus is on RSTA and CBRNE-reconnaissance missions using heterogeneous multi-robot systems. Working with such multi-robot systems is a competitive task for the operator. Even a single robot utilizes several different sensors and provides a high degree of mobility, which all need to be controlled by the operator.
CMS approaches this challenge through intelligent assistance functions. The operator is supported by these assistance functionalities on all levels, ranging from navigating a single robot to complex planning problems of multi-robot systems. Our key skill is the development of innovative tools for human-robot interaction and cooperation. For this purpose new developments are constantly integrated in experimental systems and evaluated in co-operation with security authorities and organizations as well as the military.
