Mechatronics for Hazardous Environments

Objectives: This symposium addresses mechatronic technologies and systems able to support human operation in difficult and hazardous environments. Some examples of these applications are robots to support of emergency teams during firefighting, and flood and earthquake rescue operations; the inspection and operation in difficult, dangerous or dirty environments; robotic tools for nuclear maintenance and dismantlement; the monitoring of hard to reach environments, like deep oceans, volcanos and space constrained, underground spaces such as mines, tunnels, caves and sewers and tools for humanitarian demining.

Particular topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Robotics and mechatronics for hazardous environments
• Human assistive tools for operation in risky environments
• Humanitarian demining
• Robotics for emergency scenarios
• Ground and aerial field robotics 
• Aquatic robotics
• Networked and multi-robot systems 
• Environmental sensing 
• Large scale data processing 
• Sensor networks 
• Multi-scale sampling 
• Telemetry in monitoring applications 
• Constrained path planning 
• Coordination of heterogeneous systems
• Low-energy robot design 
• Energy harvesting
