Grand Opening of the DTU Centre for Collaborative Autonomous Systems

Invitation to the Grand Opening of the DTU Centre for Collaborative Autonomous Systems (CCAS) and the Autonomous Systems Test Arena (ASTA).

Already working in the area of autonomous systems, and you wish to know what research is breaking new ground? Or you are actually wondering what an autonomous system is, and would like to become more knowledgeable about it? Then this is the event you do not want to miss.

The Technical University of Denmark aspires to become the leading international research and innovation hub on autonomous systems, and it pursues this objective by unfolding a strategy resting on three pillars: 

  • The Centre for Collaborative Autonomous Systems, an inter- and transdisciplinary research and innovation environment focused on generating cutting-edge knowledge, processes, methods, and technologies for the seamless actualization of autonomous systems in future societies

  • The Autonomous Systems Test Arena, a world-class research infrstructure where to experiment, verify and validate new technologies for aerial drones, mobile robotic platforms, and autonomous underwater vehicles

  • The MSc program on Autonomous Systems to develop the future engineering workforce of this sector in exponential growth

For this national launch we have prepared a very inspiring and engaging program, blending together forward-looking talks, interactive poster sessions and technological demos. We are gathering a unique list of speakers, which will include industrial pioneers, distinguished DTU researchers, and an outstanding international leader in the area of autonomous systems.
