sant’anna school RESEARCHERS PRESENT A TELE-ROBOT DEVICE AT THE FOCUS LIVE TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION FESTIVAL in MILAN on 2018, 8-11 NOVEMBER
The Focus magazine organized its first festival on technology and innovation in Milan Museo della Scienza e della Tecnologia “Leonardo da Vinci” on 2018, 8-11 November. The FOCUS Live. Un’ esperienza extraordinaria event sessions will show tele-robotic devices developed by Antonio Frisoli, the coordinator of the Human-Robot Interaction Lab. at the TeCIP Institute and Christian Cipriani and Marco Controzzi, coordinators of the Artificial Hands Area at the Biorobotics Institute.
Their “Exoskeleton Robotic Hand” remote operated device is suited to perform dangerous tasks in emergency or disaster zones. As their remote bilateral teleoperation exoskeleton Alex equipped with the most advanced robotic hand (Azzurra Hand) transmits sensory information back to the operator wearing the device, the received data allow the fine control of forces required to move heavy objects or performing manual handling operations. The Focus Live visitors will be able to wear Alex and act in the remote environment, physically manipulate objects, and interact with them through a parallel manipulator.
Multi sensorial experiences, the immersive environment, Artificial Intelligence, climate change and recent advances in genetics will be on show. For the first time Milan will be hosting Earth, Human Exploration, Science, Technology and Space projects involving scientists, academics, experts and artists.
