Robotics has become one of the biggest fields of education and research worldwide. The RobotX initiative at ETH Zurich is committed to provide continued education and training to the young generations of researchers and practitioners. We are planning to carry out the 2021 ETH Robotics Summer School events on site and in person.


Real Robots, Real Environments

Email: (no applications)

This summer school offers lectures and hands- on tutorials to grasp the fundamental concepts that every roboticist around the world should possess.

The tutorials and hands- on sessions will take place at a dedicated education and training center for search and rescue. You will get the opportunity to program a (semi)- autonomous rough- terrain UGV, to extensively test it in a variety of environments, and finally to challenge your colleagues in a Search and Rescue competition.

The summer school will run alongside the week- long exercise sessions ARCHE (Advanced Robotic Capabilities for Hazardous Environments). A number of research teams from Switzerland and around Europe will join the training site for Legged robots, teleoperated excavators, amphibious vehicles, UAVs and many other robots will be deployed in collapsed, burning, or flooded buildings. Specialists from different organizations will share their knowledge.

In addition, all summer school participants will get the opportunity to attend the ETH Robotics symposium, where leading researchers from across the world will share their experiences, results, and views on the different fields of robotics.
