Notice on Summer Training 2010

Due to the international event participation calendar of the IURS team, unfortunately, this summer we will be unable to offer any summer schools. Our team only becomes available after mid-August, and this, it appears, would be too late for a summer school. Normally, the summer schools we would offer are:

Introduction to Robotics (Summer Training)
Underwater Robotics and Communication (Summer Workshop)
Advanced Topics in Robotics and Intelligent Systems (Summer School)

The Indian Underwater Robotics Society (IURS) is India's first scientific NGO, registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860, dedicated to research & development and education in the field of Robotics. With a special emphasis on autonomous underwater robotic technologies, IURS has the distinction of developing India's first Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV) and also being the first non-North American team to compete at the AUVSI & ONR's International AUV Competition.

IURS now conducts research in the field of underwater robotics and imparts education to college students and professionals in the fields of unmanned systems, robotics and intelligent systems in order to encourage wide spread participation amongst the academic and hobbyist community of India. With successful workshop and online education programs, and a general body with over 200 members IURS is steadily heading towards its goal of encouraging research and development in this field within the young technical community of India.

Furthermore, IURS is also working hard to abolish the lack of availability of low-cost robotic parts and kits for the Indian student community, currently the biggest deterrent against wide-spread participation by students.
