Among the participants, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing (FER) presented some of its robotics projects from its laboratories. The Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems (LARICS) showcased two agricultural robotics projects: Specularia, a robot that autonomously takes care of the plants in a greenhouse, and WatchPlant, a project that uses sensors and drones to monitor the plants in the fields. The Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies (LABUST) demonstrated its water robot that can perform tasks such as mapping, inspection, and exploration. Other laboratories from FER also displayed their innovative and exciting projects.
The MUZZA Science Festival was a great opportunity for FER to share its research and achievements with the public, especially with the young generation. The festival attracted thousands of visitors who enjoyed learning about science and technology in a fun and engaging way.
