CEN and CENELEC Workshop on Interoperability framework for functional components of a modular search and rescue robotic platform  

The proposed CWA aims at providing recommendations for a generic search and rescue robotic platform. This platform can perform activities in all possible operational environments (i.e. aerial, ground, marine or submarine) and can require a range of sensors and communication interfaces dependent on the search and rescue scenario. In this way a generic platform can be adapted, designed, and built for any possible search and rescue scenario.

The original proposers of this Workshop are the members of the INACHUS project in a co-solidarity context typical of the European Commission Framework Programme context, and in particular, the participants in Work Package 11 of the corresponding Grand Agreement, notably the following partners: ICCS, BYTE COMPUTERS, LUAS, EXODUS, EPLFM, IFV.

The deliverable of the project is one CEN-CENELEC Workshop Agreement (CWA) to be drafted and published in English.

The estimated duration of this project is 9 months.

The kick-off meeting will take place on 9 May at the CEN-CENELEC Meeting Centre at Rue de la Science, 23 – 1040 Brussels, Belgium.

Participation is free, all interested parties are welcome to register for participation and submit comments on the Draft Project Plan to the Workshop Secretary Sophie Hamza, no later than April 30 2018 in order to guarantee your place at the kick-off meeting if you wish to attend.
