IARP Workshop on
‘Robots for Risky Interventions
and Environmental  Surveillance-Maintenance’

January,12-14, Brussels /Belgium


The general objective of the International Advanced Robotics
Programme (IARP)  is to encourage development of advanced
robotic systems that can dispense with human work for
difficult activities in harsh, demanding or dangerous
environments, and to contribute to the revitalization and
growth of the world economy.

Through this third  workshop, the IARP working group RISE
(Risky Intervention and Surveillance /Maintenance of the
Environment) and the the European partners of the FW6-IST
projects View-Finder (aiming the assistance of fire-
fighting/protection services) and Guardians (aiming the use
of swarm of robots for Rescue assistance) organise dedicated
sessions on next topics, while the mentioned European
partners organise demonstrations and videos  on the first
results of  their projects, on the Air Force Base of
