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. It is a collaborative partnership between the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and the University of Bristol. Lab tour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vwg7e-W7KZw
RIF@Paris-Saclay, France: Interactive Robotics Laboratory in Saclay, about 20km south west from Paris. It is located within the premises of CEA (Atomic Energy Commission), a French government-funded scientific and technological research organization.
RIF@Pisa-Peccioli, Italy: Laboratory for “Service Robotics and Green Robotics- Ambient Assisted Living (AAL)”of Sant’Anna School BioRobotics Institute. The BioRobotics Institute is a research park specifically created by Sant’Anna School to better house the research activities and to favour technology transfer. RIF@Pisa-Peccioli is located in Peccioli, Tuscany. The Peccioli RIF consists of outdoor and indoor settings, where different scenarios could be developed, tested and evaluated.
