The Intensive Programme SaSeRoS-2012 (Safe and Secure Robots based on Open Source Software) which is coordinated by Prof. Norbert Jung from Bonn-Rhine-Sieg University of Applied Sciences has started on Monday April 16th, 2012, at the Universidad Politècnica de València in Spain. Duration of the program is two weeks.
67 Students of five European universities will work for two weeks on safe and secure robots, among them 15 students from Information Technology degree programme of Metropolia UAS.
The project during the Intensive Program is interdisciplinary: from all participant universities professors and lecturers from various fields of engineering will lead the students in questions of basic safety principles as well as hardware and software aspects. This information is taken in use in the two week project where students design, build and verify a safe and secure robot in international groups.
By the end of the program a competition for the "safest" robot will tax the students' resources to the utmost. As a counterpart they will see parts of Valencia within the cultural programme and they will also visit the FORD Factory in Almussafes (Valencia).
SaSeRoS-2012 is funded by Erasmus Lifelong Learning Programme.
