This year in the month of May the 3rd International Symposium on Aerial Robotics (ISAR) was held in Toronto, Canada. The head of GRVC Anibal Ollero is part of the organization committee and he delivered a plenary talk entitled “Aerial Robots with Manipulation Capabilities in Flight and Perched”, with the advances that in these moments are being developed inside the GRIFFIN project’s objectives.
Last year this event was held in Philadelphia, USA and count on the presence of group member Anibal Ollero and Arturo Torres, whom disseminated the AEROARMS, Multidrone and EUROC advances in their corresponding presentations “New Systems for Industrial Contact Inspection Pipes and Bridges by using Aerial Robotics Manipulators” and “UAL: an abstraction layer for unmanned vehicles”. The ISAR has become during this past three years in an important date for the UAVs experts in USA and Europe, thanks to the organisational skills of the New York University researcher Giuseppe Loianno. part of the IEEE TC on Aerial Robotics and Unmanned Vehicles.
