INNOVATIONS IN INFRASTRUCTURE SERVICE ROBOTS: NEW VIDEO IMAGES OF "ROBOTIC INNOVATION FACILITIES" (RIF) UNIQUE LABORATORY IN ITALY
There is a new video of RIF (Robotic Innovation Facilities) now available online about latest innovations in infrastructure service robots. The video shows how project activities enhancing the use of robot technologies could be developed, tested and evaluated. The RIFs are financed by EU under the FP7 project ECHORD++. Sant’Anna School, as ECHORD++ partner, offers the consumers the opportunity to provide open experimental facilities, to develop realistic tests taking advantage of experience and investment in the infrastructure and facilitate a go-to-market process. Every company, institution or research institute can access the experimental facilities. Apply online at: http://echord.eu/rifpanel/
The RIF labs.:
RIF@Bristol, UK: Bristol Robotics Laboratory (BRL) is the most comprehensive academic centre for multi-disciplinary robotics research in the UK.
