CIM-MRL group with AQUA are front row centre at the G-20 Summit in June 2010!
What an achievement!!
Huge KUDOS go out to our own Mobile Robotics Lab, its students and researchers, and its Director, Professor Gregory Dudek. The AQUA robot was front row centre at the G-20 Summit in June 2010. The Honourable Peter Van Loan, Minister of International Trade, showcased Canadian innovations and leading-edge technologies during a tour of Canadian business displays at the Experience Canada pavilion in Toronto, Ontario. The Minister’s tour of the Experience Canada pavilion featured interactive displays of Canadian innovations from across the country, including: AQUA - the world’s first amphibious robot, which was developed by McGill University’s Centre for Intelligent Machines. The robot can carry out a wide range of tasks related to environmental inspection and reclamation, aquaculture, and national defence. It also has the capacity to work in a teleoperational mode using an Ethernet connection, and is equally at home under the ocean as on land.
