Long awaited robot test facility at the NIST headquarters is open for business. This 1524 square meter site is equipped with an extensive set of test modules including mobility, manipulation, human-robot interaction, sensing, power/endurance. We are looking forward to using the capabilities made available at this site in our project with NIST.
Robolit has received a 3-year grant from NIST (National Institutes of Standards and Technology) to develop standard test methods for response robots with an emphasis on dexterous manipulation tasks. We are happy to receive this grant and looking forward to the exciting period of collaboration with our international partners in search and rescue community.
The SSRR Summer School 2012 event is concluded. We had a great week full of technical presentations, hands-on practicals, tests at the recently established Alanya Robot Test Facility and lots of social events. Our event has been featured on various newspapers and TV channels.
In partnership with Drita Hotel Resort and Spa and technical support by NIST, Robolit has established the Alanya Robot Test Facility. The facility is certified by NIST and compliant with the DHS-NIST-ASTM robot test standards. The site will be used at the upcoming SSRR Summer School 2012 workshop and will be available to robotic researchers there after.
SSRR Summer School 2012 has started with the attendance of 69 researchers from 16 countries and 32 groups at the Drita Hotel Resort and Spa. Detailed information about the venue and the program can be found at the official event site. We thank our financial and technical sponsors for making this event happen.
Robolit has received a 1-year grant from NIST (National Institute for Standards and Technology)to develop performance metrics for the qualitative evaluation of mobile robot manipulators for inspection, grasping and precision placement.
