Assistive Robotics and low-cost exoskeletons

Assistive Robotics and low-cost exoskeletons

In our lab we are developing research on low-cost exoskeletons, devices capable of helping people with motor disabilities in everyday life.

This technology is aimed at patients suffering from muscle weakness (eg muscular dystrophy) and allows – through non-invasive electrodes – to collect the nerve signal and estimate the patient’s movement in anticipation.

Exoskeletons currently on the market have prohibitive costs to be adopted in the home environment. In order to to reduce costs, we are therefore working on:
• an elastic support that allows the application of small size and low cost motors;
• a flexible mechanical structure that allows to estimate the interaction forces through its own deformation.

FORECAST research is developed within the EUROBENCH European Project.

European Robotics Forum 2021

We wait for you on April 13th with a pitch on interventional robotics, by Riccardo Muradore.

The European Robotics Forum 2021 (ERF 2021), the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe, will be held as a virtual event 13-15 April 2021. The ERF2021 covers all aspects and current themes related to the field of robotics. Researchers, engineers, managers, and a growing number of entrepreneurs, businesspeople, and public funding officers from all over Europe come together to discuss technology push and market pull and how innovation in robotics and robotics-related AI can be accelerated.

About Maker Faire

Created in 2006 in the Bay Area of San Francisco as a project of the Make: magazine, now Make: community.

Maker Faire Rome – The European Edition, on the other hand, is the largest edition outside the United States, second only to the Bay Area edition, the only two Global Maker Faire in the world.

The event places the city of Rome at the centre of the innovation debate and brings together science, technology, innovation, creating something completely new. It is a fair where dreamers and talents mix and create a magical alchemy. It is also the place where you learn, have fun and networking opportunities are created.

– Industrial robotic arm
– Exoskeleton – Robotic Orthosis
– Force Control Testbench
– da Vinci Surgical System
– Remote control station for the Surgical robotic arms

Enjoy the tour safely, looking forward to meet you in person!

It’s time for the ribbon cutting

It’s time for the ribbon cutting

On Friday 18 September 2020 we had the pleasure of celebrating the beginning of two important journeys that bring the world of research closer to the needs of the Territory and put the University a growing relationship with the productive realities that animate the Verona area.

The common goal of the ICE Lab and the ODINO Project is to create value, skills, and employment through a process of technology transfer for young people approaching the market and those workers who need a new qualification or learning new skills.

ICE – Industrial Computer Engineering Lab Verona

The inauguration of the ICE Laboratory – Industrial Computer Engineering Lab, of the Department of Computer Science – University of Verona – is born in the context of the Excellence Project “Industria per l’Informatica 4.0” won by the Computer Science Department. Located in the suggestive industria archaeological area of the “Magazzini Generali”, ICE Laboratory is easily reachable and well connected to the city center.

For us, at ALTAIR it was an opportunity to present to companies our latest research in the field of robotics and create new connections and networks for future collaborations.

ODINO – Officine d’Innovazione

The inauguration of the Officina ODINO Soave is the first step of the ODINO – Officine D’Innovazione Project [Innovation Workshops] which offers free training excellence courses for young people aged 16 to 30 in the Verona area.

The project was possible thanks to the Cariverona Foundation and consists of the creation of two different Innovation workshops specialized in the sectors of viticulture (Soave) and manufacturing industry 4.0 (Verona).

The Officina ODINO Verona is preparing to open in January 2021, and will be located at the General Ex-Market, next to the ICE Laboratory, and will offer basic and specialized training in Industry 4.0 and robotics, in collaboration with manufacturing companies of the area.
