We are back from INRS2013 where we presented SCRIPT project

We are just back from INRS2013 (www.inrs2013.com). Four exciting days:
First we took part in a workshop organised by COST TD1006, European network on Robotics for Neurorehabilitation. We took part in Work Group 2 activities related to quality of movement (smoothness, error, accuracy, interlimb coordination and so on).
Day two we contributed into discussions during multiple workshops, namely discussions on Armeo Spring and Manovo Spring organised by Hocoma, and the workshop organised by Tyromotion with the full range of products and their use. Also, workshop about GLOREHA design and development (glove for rehabilitation at home and clinics) was exciting.
We also organised a workshop session regarding SCRIPT project and its progress, which resulted in many good questions and discussions.
Days 3 and 4 focused on multiple exciting keynotes followed by themed sessions. SCRIPT project was presented as a podium presentation, summarising the findings of the project so far.
Discussions continued over the coffee breaks and dinner, so 4 excellent days were dedicated to rehabilitation and robotics.
Well done INRS2013 and COST TD1006. Thank you SCRIPT consortium specifically Angelo Basteris, Nasrin Nasr, Jaap Buurke, Sharon Nijenhuis and Gerdienke Prange.

The CORBYS project website is now operational (May, 2011)

The website for our CORBYS project is now operational and can be found here:http://www.corbys.eu/index.php/Home.html

In short, CORBYS focuses on developing a cognitive control framework which will allow symbiotic relation between a robot and its human user. Such relation is tested in the context of robot-mediated gait rehabilitation system or a general human-robot interaction context using an autonomous robot. For more information, please visit the project website above, or contact myself or Dr Daniel Polani.

EURobotics Forum (April, 2011)

I have just returned from a three-day EU Robotics forum (6th-8th of April, Vasteras, Sweden:http://www.eurobotics-project.eu/cms/index.php?idcat=40).

This was forum hosted by RoboDalen (http://www.robotdalen.se/en/About-Robotdalen/). The Forum is part of the EURobotics Coordination Action and has been formerly known as EUROP/EURON Annual Conference.

London School of Economics, Technology with Disabled and Older People (Jan, 2011)

I have just been to a two-day conference at London School of Economics, “Technology with Disabled and Older People” . The conference was well organised and very inspiring. I truly enjoyed the wide spectrum of presentations covering areas such as technological advancements and impact assessment topics. In addition, this was a great venue for networking and learning about new national, European and International initiatives. Here is the knowledge tree website which will host presentations and further developments resulting from the conference:
