The scope of this topic is not only to develop new robotic solutions for specific tasks but addresses also more holistically the surrounding environment and factors that impact civil protection on a larger scale.
- Broad acceptance of autonomous systems by first responders and affected people in civil protection;
- Higher safety and security standards for operational forces working in hazardous environments;
- Get ahead of future shortcomings of trained first responder personnel by increasing first responder efficiency (less personnel do more work in shorter time);
- Increased ability to conduct on-scene operations remotely without endangering first responders;
- European robotics industry is strengthened through engagement in the civil protection research as well as an economic and political advantage through building up know-how for innovative technologies;
- Reduction of false positive readouts from various sensors carried by robots.
