Final Demonstration of the ICARUS project in a Sea Search and Rescue Scenario
On the 9th and 10th of July 2015, the final field trials of the robotic tools developed within the FP7 project ICARUS will take place in the Portuguese Naval Base and Academy (ICARUS member CINAV), at Alfeite (Lisbon), Portugal. These sea trials will showcase how the robotic tools developed by the ICARUS project partners can assist “human” search and rescue teams during a major disaster at sea, such a the sinking of a large ferryboat or a cruising ship.
Multiple unmanned maritime and aerial vehicles equipped with powerful sensors will be deployed in a simulated crisis management exercise. These unmanned vehicles will collaborate as a coordinated team, communicating via ad hoc cognitive radio networking. To ensure optimal human-robot collaboration, these vehicles will be seamlessly integrated into the command and control tools of the human crisis managers.
The presentations will be delivered in English.
