Final Demonstration of the ICARUS project in an Urban Search and Rescue Scenario

04 september 2015
10:00u - 16:00u
Belgian First Aid and Support Team in Marche-en-Famenne

On the 4th of September 2015, the final field demonstrations of the robotic search and rescue tools developed within the FP7 project ICARUS will take place on the training grounds of the Belgian First Aid and Support Team in Marche-en-Famenne, Belgium. These field trials will showcase how the robotic tools (not only drones and ground robots, but also the communication, command & control and training tools supporting these robots) developed by the ICARUS project partners can assist “human” search and rescue teams in the aftermath of a major disaster, such as an earthquake. If you are eager to find out what to expect from these demonstrations, then you can take a look at the video of last year’s event here
