LONGUEUIL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- As members of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) Canadian Field Robotics Network (NCFRN), students, researchers and professionals of the industry are coming together at the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) this week to test their most recent innovations. On the last day of this event, pan-Canadian teams of researchers will give demonstrations of their latest research in robotics. Their projects focus on the development of robots able to collaborate to achieve complex tasks in different environments, including land, air, water and interaction with humans.
Media are invited to attend demonstrations of the latest innovations in field robotics on Thursday, May 15, from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
NCFRN, which is composed of 11 university research labs, 10 industrial partners and 4 government partners, aims at pooling knowledge and acting as a catalyst Canadian industry in the development of cutting-edge technology. Aside from their potential space applications, the technologies that will be presented may one day be used in different sectors that have a direct impact on the lives of Canadians, such as iceberg monitoring, coastal monitoring or even senior care.
Date: Thursday, May 15, 2014 Time: From 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (EDT) What: Demonstration of the latest applications developed for rovers and flying rovers. Who: McGill University, Mobile Robotics Laboratory Queens University, Mining Systems Laboratory University of Alberta, Robotics Research Laboratory Simon Fraser University CrossWing Inc. Where: Canadian Space Agency, 6767, Route de l'Aeroport Saint- Hubert, Quebec J3Y 8Y9
Note: The demonstrations will be held outside on the CSA's analogue terrain, which simulates the surfaces of the Moon and Mars. In case of rain, they will take place indoors.

In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.
