TUSExpo has announced its first speakers scheduled to present during the first European Unmanned Systems trade show and conference, taking place 4-6 February 2015 in the World Forum, The Hague.


Responding to an ever growing market for commercial and civil unmanned systems TUSExpo offers a conference programme, in which applications ranging from agriculture to environmental research and security are widely discussed.

The potential of unmanned systems in agriculture will be highlighted by Lammert Kooistra, assistant professor Integrated Sensing for Monitoring and Assessment at the University of Wageningen, and Allard Martinet, managing director at Nagel, discussing aerial and land applications respectively.

David Bird, emeritus professor of Wildlife Biology at the McGill University, Montreal, Canada will hold a presentation on the use of aerial unmanned systems in wildlife. The potential of maritime unmanned systems for environmental research will be discussed by Wesley Boënne, researcher at Vito.

Security applications are also on the agenda with Knut Moe speaking on unmanned aerial systems in this sector. More details on the conference programme will be published on www.tusexpo.com.

TUSExpo is a dedicated business platform bringing together European and global companies across the entire unmanned systems supply chain. In addition to demonstrating the latest technology developments and increasing potential in the use of unmanned systems, the event provides opportunities for enhanced international co-operation.

Would you like to be part of the first integrated Unmanned Systems tradeshow and conference in Europe, and benefit from the opportunities it offers by bringing together both European and global players in a dedicated trade platform? For more information contact:

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
