Welcome Ceremony Lecture
19:45 Reials Drassanes
Servicing and exploration are key application areas for robotics and automation in space
The space requirements for ultra light weight arms and hands with minimal power losses as well as the need for powerful telepresence and shared autonomy concepts stimulate the development of innovative robotic systems, which are excellently suited for future service, assistance and surgical applications on earth, too. The talk briefly outlines historical milestones and present projects and developments which are suited to push the necessary technologies massively forward. And it has turned out meanwhile that sensors and computational methods for modelling planetary surfaces (e.g. the MARS-Express-Mission) are excellently applicable for terrestrial 3D-world modelling in the context of virtual tourism and cultural heritage.
How to get to Reials Drassanes
Welcome ceremony will be held in Drassanes building (old XIV century shipyard in Barcelona). Drassanes building can be reached by Metro (recommended) or by bus.
