DRHE 2013 Dependable Robots in

Promoting Institutions & Sponsors

The general objective of the International Advanced Robotics Programme (IARP) is to foster international cooperation aiming to develop robot systems able to dispense with human exposure to difficult activities in harsh, demanding or dangerous conditions or environments, and so to contribute to the revitalization and growth of the world economy.

IARP shares with the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) the interest in promoting initiatives that can trigger the development of novel robotic systems and of new areas of application for robotic technologies.

The workshop is supported by IARP countries : Australia, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, UK, USA and the Robot Dependability Working Group (
