“Project I-M” is a project created by Saxion students supported by the Dutch branch of the Thales Group company located in Hengelo. The purpose is to create a short production film, featuring a photo realistic friendly robot, on a journey from the Thales factory across the Netherlands. The robot is actually the latest radar for naval security being produced by Thales. As an end goal the robot has to reach his designated ship and transform into the radar which will be the eyes and ears of the ship. The robot is a mascot, which purpose is to attract young engineers to search for a career within Thales.
