Dr Farshad Arvin from RNE visited the Artificial Life Laboratory at Karl-Franzens University of Graz in Austria to study possibilities of using bio-inspired algorithms for applications in extreme environments. For example, honeybees’ social behaviour in finding the optimal zone in their hive could help robots find possible chemical leakages.

MALLARD @ ICRA 2018
RNE team members Barry Lennox and Keir Groves participated in ICRA 2018 (https://icra2018.org/). Keir Groves was supporting the IAEA stand at the conference as part of our on-going participation in the 2017 IAEA robotics challenge. Of 27 entrants into the challenge, MALLARD is one of the three systems that were found to be technically acceptable. The MALLARD system is presently undergoing design improvements ready for active field trials.
Good luck and thanks to Lenka!
