Are you a geek? Do you love technology and building robots? Well, we have good news for you: Applications for the ETH Robotics Summer School are now open. Want another good news? This year it will be on-site and in person! So, let’s carry our suitcase and travel to one of the most beautiful countries in the world to learn from one of the best universities in Switzerland and the globe.
All summer school participants will get the opportunity to attend the ETH Robotics Innovation Day, where leading researchers from across the world will share their experiences, results, and views on the different fields of robotics.
The event will run alongside the week-long exercise sessions ARCHER (Advanced Robotic Capabilities for Hazardous Environments). Several research teams from Switzerland and around Europe will join the training site for legged robots, teleoperated excavators, amphibious vehicles, UAVs, and many other robots that will be deployed in collapsed, burning, or flooded buildings. Specialists from different organizations will share their knowledge.
