[30.01.2018] Press meeting for the media in the European region

The regional representative of the European Commission located in Bonn has invited the Bots2ReC project to present the project to a wider public. The Bots2ReC team organized a press meeting at RWTH and presented the project to regional camera teams and journalists from eu-regional and scientific newspapers and radio stations.

After a presentation of the project motivation, the consortium and our main development steps, we demonstrated a mobile platform used for the sensor development and established a live stream to our prototype, currently in operation at the facilities in Barcelona.

A first report (in German language) can be found here:

[22.11.2017] Presentation of Bots2ReC at the European Robotics Week 2017


The Bots2ReC team presented the project during the European Robotics Week 2017: The project had a booth during the exhibition at the Committee of Regions in Brussels on 22nd of November for the “environment” topic. It was on the same the first occasion to show our new project video, giving insights into different aspects of the project and to present 1:10 scale models of the prototype for an easy explanation of the prototype.

The exchange with EC representatives (for example for the topic of digitalization in construction industry) and an video interview for the social media publication were excellent opportunities to present the project to a wider public.
