Common CoTeSys-CREATE Workshop in Garching, 5 Oct 2012, 9 a.m. - 4.30 p.m.

09/20/2012 : 09:52

On October 5, 2012, the Cluster of Excellence CoTeSys and the newly established Japanese research center CREATE - Center of Robotics for Extreme and Uncertain Environments at Tohoku University, organize a common workshop on the scientific and technical challenges of robotics in the next decades.

After the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011 many voices rose with the question why there were no suitable robots available to carry out the dangerous task of exploring the nuclear power plant. In 2011 the Center of Robotics for Extreme and Uncertain Environments - CREATE was founded at Tohoku University in Japan. CREATE was established as a consequence of the Fukushima disaster.

The challenging questions of the future use of robots is the focus of the joint CoTeSys-CREATE workshop.
