Sailing Trip 2018

From the 27th of April till the 29th of April the annual sailing trip of S.A. Astatine took place. This year a group of students went to Giethoorn where single masted boats were rented. The days were spent on, or in, the water and during the night Werewolves was one of the favourite games to play. 

An aftermovie was made to give an impression of the weekend, enjoy!

Symposium Autonomous Systems

On the 25th of April, the symposium of Astatine about Autonomous System took place in Waaier 3. To kick off the day, Geert Folkertsma gave an introduction about the subject, after which Nicolò Botteghi talked about a pipe cleaning robot, PIRATE, and how to make it autonomous. Owen King followed by talking about ethics, with room for a discussion afterwards. Afterwards, a nice lunch made sure that everyone could recover a little and prepare for one of the two workshops. During the workshop by Sioux, participants were challenged to design a robot that can clean solar panels. Clear Flight Solutions had a workshop about their Robird, and what the issues could be with making it autonomous. After a few closing words by Geert, the day ended in the TAP, where participants could discuss the day with the added enjoyment of a drink.
