The first BADGER Newsletter is now available in PDF
The BADGER project is organizing a workshop in the European Robotics Forum 2018 (ERF2018), held in Tampere, Finland, on 22-24 March 2018, entitled “Intelligent trenchless underground robotic systems”. The workshop will take place on Wednesday, 14 March 2018; more details can be found here.
The Consortium of the BADGER project met in Glasgow, Scotland, UK, on 13-14 November 2017, at the premises of the University of Glasgow. The primary purpose of the meeting was to further elaborate on the design of the BADGER robot, its specifications and overall architecture. Decisions on a series of key aspects of the BADGER H/W and S/W design were taken, paving the way towards the following project steps, which will focus on the detailed definition of the BADGER architecture and the initial developments of the robot prototype.
The BADGER projects was at the European Committee of the Regions exhibition during European Robotics Week 2017 in Brussels, Belgium.
