Year Two Review

Between the 29th of May and 1st of June 2018 the consortium had a meeting in Dublin for the FUTEBOL's second year review. During those days, The reviewers had the chance to question the consortium about several aspects of the project and also to see live/recorded demos using the testbeds and our control framework. The review days are challenging, but the project members reach the last day with the feeling of duty accomplished.
