Colloquium

Posted in Uncategorized at 4:11 pm by Jaldert

Today we did a presentation for the staff and other interested people on our Blimp project. This was the final milestone of our blimp-adventure.

Now we are all very busy with making the final arrangements for our Master’s project in the United States. The new Blimp-team will have their first official meeting this week, to decide on practical goals for the future of the project.

We wish them the best of luck, and hope that they will enjoy the project as much as we did!

Zeppy on television

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:16 am by Matthijs

Logo of RTV Noord Well, we’ve had our 15 minutes of fame! Drop all your science-work: Hollywood, here we come!

But seriously: we’ve been on regional television with Zeppy! As part of a show called “De week bekeken” (”A look at the past week”), we’ve answered some questions about Zeppy and Artificial Intelligence in general. We also showed some of the capabilities of Zeppy and have flown around with him. As you’ll notice when viewing the clip ‘we’ are still the ‘old’ team, but the new team is also very busy with Zeppy, so you can expect a new blog-post from them soon.

We’ll hopefully receive a high-quality version of the video-clip very soon to replace this one.

Also, next wednesday (april 9th) at 13 o’clock, we will hold our final presentation about the project in the Bernoulliborg in Groningen!
