May 26, 2012 — Larus Technologies proudly supports the IEEE 10th Annual Ottawa Robotics Competition, as the program event Silver Sponsor. The Competition aims at bringing engineering awareness to students in grades 5 and 12 by presenting a fun and instructive approach to problem solving.

Using Robolab LEGO MINDSTORMS kits, the students have around 10 weeks to design and build an autonomous robot. In teams of five to ten, they learn engineering concepts with the help of a mentor and come together to produce a working prototype.

This year’s competition was held at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School on Saturday, May 26th, 2012 and attracted over 200 students from 41 teams!

Read more/less

July 3, 2012 – Larus Technologies is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the Canadian Tracking and Fusion Group (CTFG) Workshop 2012.  The Workshop is used as a forum to present novel research developments on all aspects of multi-target tracking and multi-sensor/multi-source information fusion, both theory and application, revolving around both established and emerging topics. This year’s workshop is to be held on September 12-14, 2012 in Ottawa, Canada.Participation in the CTFG provides members from different sectors in Canada with a forum for discussing technologies that have a common relevance across many applications domains, including land, air, space, maritime, underwater, etc.  Specifically, the objectives of the workshop are as follows: 1) discussing current topics of interest in various application areas; 2) understanding the needs of government and industry groups and linking them with the capabilities of university groups; 3) establishing sub-groups and benchmark problems to evaluate new and established technologies; 4) identifying future directions for R&D in view of Canada’s priorities.About CTFG

The CTFG is an independent and informal group dedicated to advancing the knowledge, theory and applications of tracking and information fusion activities in Canada. Through our web site, Google Group, workshops and other activities, it is our vision to encourage the exchange of information and the spawning of collaborations on problems of common interests, incorporating diversified applications, including those for land, air, space, maritime and underwater. More information about the group is available at: www.ctfg.ca
