Global Swarming: A Robotic Revolution

General description

Have you ever wondered how a group of 'nanosatellites' can be more effective than one big satellite? Have you ever heard of Delft's autonomous dragonfly robots (Delfly)? Would you like to know how it's like to interact with robots in Delft's upcoming Robohouse? Together with Delft University of Technology's Robotics Institute, we will explore the power of many, and its many applications on land, under the sea, in the sky and even in space.

Spend time in the beautiful city of Delft, with its stunning canals and town square. You will have the chance to meet one of the most international Local BEST Groups, and celebrate our national liberation day. Meet the secret society of the Aluminati, taste drinks with gold inside, and enjoy the sweet taste of stroopwafels.

Do you think you can be the juice to our Tholen?

Just apply, and find out!
