On 17 October 2019, representatives of the projects Pipebots, UNEXMIN and ROBOMINERS have gathered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, for a Joint Workshop. The event was attended by approximately 20 specialists in geosciences and electrical and process engineering.

At this occasion, ROBOMINERS coordinator Claudio Rossi (UPM) provided a general presentation about the project.

The aim of this first Joint Workshop was to exchange on the progress of the different projects and share ideas on topics relevant for all three projects such as sensing, locomotion, communication between robots, storage capacity and processing, management of data, and energy consumption.

The European Federation of Geologists (EFG) and La Palma Research Centre (LPRC) were also actively involved in the workshop as it is part of ROBOMINERS clustering activities.

Follow-up meetings are already under planning. Stay tuned!
