The NCFRN provides the national framework for 11 researchers from 8 renowned Canadian universities as well as 11 industrial partners and 3 government agencies to combine their skills and expertise. This network of people and organizations will allow them to make better progress and compete more effectively internationally. The network addresses basic questions in robotics science and the technologies developed by the NCFRN will help address Canadian problems such as our monitoring and maintaining the state of our environmental heritage, patrolling borders (e.g. in the Arctic), dealing with environmental disasters (e.g. oil spills and nuclear accidents), or improving the quality of life of senior citizens.
