Reach out

Through so-called research camps BRICS reaches out to the robotics community for joint developments and dissemination purposes. Other than a regular workshop, where people meet to discuss and exchange information in a relatively short time frame, research camps typically last between one and two weeks and have tangible results, e.g., a software library of specific robot functionality which will then become a contribution to the BRICS Open Code Repository. Situated somewhere between a summer school and the renowned ACM programming contests, BRICS research camps are attended by highly qualified engineers, Ph.D. students and senior researchers alike. They will have access to some of the most advanced robotic hardware available today on which the jointly developed software will be validated through showcases with industrial and academic relevance.
