ARC Info Event for new Students

When 🕕 : Wednesday 04.10.2023, 6pm (18:00)
Where 📍 : LEE E308
Who 🥸 : Anyone interested in computer vision, robotics or the plastic waste problem who could imagine contributing as a volunteer.
How ⚙️ : Sign up using this link. (Or just drop by, but it helps us to know ahead)
Why 🧠 : You get the opportunity to work with real scientific platforms like ARCAM and MARC where you can apply your theoretical knowledge and gather practical experience in a team of like minded people. We also do team events and excursions to related projects from time to time.

The Autonomous River Cleanup (ARC) project is a student project at the Robotic Systems Lab. We started our work by tackling plastic waste in rivers and continuously expanded to new fields. Our goal is to reduce waste disposal in nature with the help of robotics and machine learning. We work closely with our industrial partners and several European universities. Our team mainly consists of volunteers and students. Experienced researchers from various institutions supervise the scientific work.

Our Mission

We develop technology to create a positive environmental impact and to train the next generation of leaders for sustainable development.
We achieve this by incorporating state-of-the-art sensing, AI and robotics into the process to unlock the value of waste. We seek provide accurate estimates of pollution in nature to encourage policy makers and industry leaders to take action against pollution.
