Kids University 2019

We are happy to take part to the annual edition of Kidsuniversity Verona 2019 with tho open labs dedicated to school classes and to families named “Past Present and Future of Robotics”.

Tuesday 17 September: Kidslab During the morning we had the pleasure to host two classes from the Verona area that have experienced how to build and program a toy robot.

Saturday 21 September: FamilyLab During the morning we had the pleasure to host kids and families and dive together into the world of robotics.

Forecast Project

Forecast Project

The first six months of the Forecast Project have been completed with a paper submission

 

The FORECAST project focuses on benchmarking force control algorithms for robotic locomotion applications such as exoskeletons and humanoids. As a result, tools will be developed to help robot designers choose the best force control algorithms and to define standardized metrics for their evaluation.

Submitted paper: “Actuation selection for assistive exoskeletons: matching capabilities to task requirements” by Andrea Calanca, Stefano Toxiri, Davide Costanzi, Enrico Sartori, Tommaso Poliero, Christian Di Natali, Darwin G. Caldwell, Paolo Fiorini, Jesús Ortiz as a regular paper to the IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering.

Workshop: Towards Robotic Autonomy in Surgery

On June 23rd 2019 we had the pleasure to participate to the annual Hamlyn Symposium on Robotics 2019, at the Royal Geographical Society, London and organizing the workshop “Towards Robotic Autonomy in Surgery” sponsored by the University of Verona.
Workshop co-Chairs and Organisers:  Paolo Fiorini, Riccardo Muradore, Francesco Setti.

The Hamlyn Symposium was also the occasion to show the audience our research with paper and poster presentations.

Robotica, trasformazione digitale e apprendimento

Robotica, trasformazione digitale e apprendimento

9 maggio 2019, ore 9.30 presso l’Istituto tecnico-tecnologico Ferraris, Via del Pontiere, 40, Verona

Una giornata dedicata all’innovazione tecnologica

Speedhub, il Digital Innovation Hub di Confindustria Verona, in collaborazione con Comau, azienda italiana leader nei prodotti e sistemi di automazione industriale avanzata, e con il dipartimento di Informatica dell’ateneo, promuove l’evento “Robotica, trasformazione digitale e apprendimento”, che si terrà il 9 maggio alle 9.30 all’istituto tecnico-tecnologico Ferraris.

L’evento si aprirà con i saluti di Franco Fummi e di Riccardo Muradore, docenti di Sistemi di elaborazione delle informazioni dell’ateneo scaligero, che presenteranno il progetto di eccellenza del dipartimento “Informatica per Industria 4.0” e la nuova laurea magistrale in Robotics & digital manufacturing engineering.

Si proseguirà con la premiazione per il conseguimento del patentino della robotica ai migliori studenti del Veneto, Trentino e Friuli. In seguito, si svolgeranno tre workshop paralleli a partecipanti ristretti: e.DO Experience per gruppi scolastici su prenotazione; eDO cafè, riservato al confronto con dirigenti e docenti scolastici, fondazioni, associazioni e musei; HUMANufacturing Technology con l’introduzione alla vision Comau, il nuovo esoscheletro indossabile MATE e il veicolo a guida autonoma Agile1500, riservato a piccole, media e grandi aziende e università.

La robotica è ormai un elemento tecnologico indispensabile per qualunque professione e tutti dovrebbero averne una conoscenza di base, così come per l’informatica e i telefoni cellulari.
Ccon le iniziative che abbiamo in corso, che saranno aperte alle scuole, alle aziende e agli ordini professionali, vogliamo dare un contributo importante all’alfabetizzazione robotica della città e della regione e contribuire a migliorare sia i processi produttivi delle aziende che la vita indipendente delle persone.
