As part of the EMRA’18 workshop, we visited Centre for Robotics & Intelligent Systems (CRIS). CRIS was presented by Dr. Edin Omerdić and Dr. Gerard Dooly. Their work is focused on control systems research and development for field robotics in the domains of marine robotics, airborne robotics, and industrial robotics. The 5th edition of the EMRA workshop took place in Limerick, 12 -13 June 2018. The EMRA’18 was organised by University of Limerick and CRIS under EU projects "EXCELLABUST - Excelling LABUST in marine robotics" and "EUMR - EUMarineRobots".
