On July 11th and 12th GMV hosted the Preliminary Design Review for the FACILITATORS project in Tres Cantos (Madrid). GMV Spain coordinates this European H2020 project with the participation of DLR, DFKI and AIRBUS DS. The aim of the PDR is to consolidate the requirements and design of the adaptations of the facilities required for performing the validation campaigns of the SRC building blocks.
In this meeting a review of the Interfaces with respect to the other robotic projects that are being developed in parallel (the so-called “operational grants” or OG,s., each of them aimed to tackle a specific need for robotics – robotic operating system – OG1, autonomy – OG2, sensor data fusion – OG3, sensors development – OG4, hardware interfaces – OG5 and facilities – OG6 ) have been performed. This meeting counted with the presence in GMV facilities of a wide set of experts in robotics from all over Europe, belonging to all the OGs.
