On September 16 and 17 2004,
Polytechnique was the host for the 3rd Edition of the Forum des Étudiants en
Aérospatiale (FEA) where more than 250 students from all the Province attended
various related activities.
This Forum is an annual event organized by
undergraduate and graduate students involved in the Aerospace field, jointly
with some important industry partners affiliated with the Consortium de Recherche et d'Innovation en Aérospatiale
au Québec (CRIAQ). The Forum gives an exposure for the actual knowledge and
strengths of the local Aerospace sector, but also shows some research and
development projects for tomorrow's technologies.

During this Forum was
held a contest of project presentations related to the field of Aerospace. Julien
Beaudry, Robofoot's team director, was giving a presentation entitled Systèmes multi-robots coopératifs, applications en
aérospatiale. Demonstrating the interesting link between the developments
made at Polytechnique and their possible applications in various domains like
extra-planetary exploration systems, this presentation was awarded the 1st Price
in the Graduate studies category. This is a great example of the relevance of
the developments made in the Robofoot project!
