Safe and Secure Robots studied in Metropolia

08.04.2013

The international Intensive Programme (IP) Safe and Secure Robots based on Open Source Software (SaSeRoS-2013) starts on Monday 8th of April in Metropolia’s Leppävaara’s campus. The theme of the IP is Design of Safe and Reliable Technical Systems. 60 Students from European universities will work on the theme for two weeks.

Students and lecturers from four universities, Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences , Høgskolen i Sør-Trøndelag (Norway), Hogeskool van Amsterdam (The Netherlands), Universitat Politècnica de València (Spain) and Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg (Germany), jointly learn and teach about safe and secure systems on the example of robotics.

The programme is interdisciplinary; the professors and lecturers represent various fields of engineering and they 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 specify, design, build and verify a safe and secure house hold robot in international groups. To add a little twist to the project there is a competition amongst the team - who specifys the best, the most practical and the safest robot and meets the specifications by the end of two weeks in trial tests.

This is the third SaSeRos- intensive programme. Previously it has been held in Germany in 2011 and in Spain in 2012. The programme is coordinated by Prof. Norbert Jung from Bonn-Rhine-Sieg University of Applied Science. SaSeRoS-2013 is funded by Erasmus Lifelong Learning Programme.
