Terminator VII: Robots of the deep blue

General description


Are you ready to experience a once in a lifetime course?

If the answer is yes, you need to come to Brest! This course will introduce you to the field of marine robotics, covering the key areas of autonomous robotic mission, command and control, and sensors (acoustic, magnetic and optical). The main idea is to move from theory to practical experience on real systems. We will be spending most of the time at lake Guerlédan so that you can get practical experience.

Besides that, you will be able to discover one of the most beautiful regions in France -Brittany. You will have the opportunity to make new BEST friends and taste the BEST crêpes in the world! Join us and you won’t regret it!

We can’t wait to see you soon!

Hasta la vista, BESTie!
