Use of I-X/IM-PACs for Extreme Expedition Support: scaling the world's highest points with Rob Milne
Rob Milne aimed to climb Everest spring 2005 - and would have completed
his round of the continent tops.
His interest in AI technology gave us an opportunity to develop an application of the I-X tools and ideas to expedition support - this was the purpose of the I-Ex project.
This page detailed the progress of this project - and of Rob's expedition via a web log.
Rob left Edinburgh for Kathmandu on 3 April 2005, and aimed to reach the summit of Everest in late May. Weather delays held up the summit attempt. Rob collapsed and died 400 metres from the summit early on 5th June 2005 Nepal Time..
Rob maintained an expedition blog.
