The BADGER project exhibited the underground robotic system at the ERF 2020, which was held on 3-5 March, 2020, in Malaga, Spain. The BADGER booth at the ERF 2020 exhibition space drew the attention of visitors, showcasing the real underground robot H/W, as well as videos from the underground robot operational tests that had been performed by that time.
The field trials of the BADGER project are taking place during the first months of 2020, in the Scientific Park in Leganes, Madrid. The trials are being led by UC3M and are performed with close collaboration from the further project partners. The underground robotic system is being extensively tested here under new climate and soil conditions.
Following the field tests of the BADGER underground robot in Lennenstadt, the robotic system has been transferred to Madrid within December 2019, to continue with the next step of the project field trials.
The Consortium of the BADGER project met in Athens, Greece, on 12 December 2019, at the premises of Singular Logic (SILO). The primary purpose of the meeting was to discuss on a series of technical aspects of the integration of the BADGER robot, as well as to define the plan for the upcoming project tests.
The BADGER underground robotic system is being tested within October 2019 in the project’s field trials that are taking place in Lennenstadt, in the Sauerland in southeast North Rhine-Westphalia. In these field trials, which take place, the BADGER robot operation is being extensively tested, in conditions that often involve a series of challenges, such as particularly wet soil.
