CITRIS Seed Award given for wildfire detection research

Dr. Alice Agogino, Squishy Robotics CEO and a UC Berkeley professor, and Dr. Becca Fenwick of UC Santa Cruz were joint recipients of one of the 2022 CITRIS Seed Awards. Their proposal, “Human-Drone-Robot Teaming for Wildfire Detection: Technology and Workforce Development,” focuses on better detection and prediction of wildfire events while also empowering fire professionals to leverage emerging technologies.

The CITRIS Seed Awards are granted by the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society and the Banatao Institute (CITRIS) at the University of California (UC) to seed high-impact research. The eight selected proposals were submitted by multicampus teams from Berkeley, Davis, Merced, and Santa Cruz.
