The IEEE International Symposium on Safety Security Rescue Robotics will be organised in the Linkoping University (Sweden) from the next 21st until 26th October 2013.
The IEEE International Symposium on Safety Security Rescue Robotics was established by the RAS Technical Committee on Safety, Security, and Rescue Robotics shortly after the use of robots at the 9/11 World Trade Center collapse and subsequent accelerated adoption of robots for homeland security and public safety.
The symposium covers design and implementation of robotics, automation, intelligent machines, systems and devices that can contribute to civilian safety. Applications include search and rescue, rapid screening of travelers and cargo, hazardous material handling, humanitarian demining, and detection of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, or explosive risks. While this symposium is conceptually centered on a set of application domains, the focus is on quality research and fundamental principles that lead to useful robots and automation in all domains.
It is worth to mention that this symposium, organised by the IEEE -the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology-, is sponsored by Robotics and Automation Society – RA.
