Several companies are giving demo's and exhibiting their products on the icsr 2011.
Demo of Probo (Vrije Universiteit Brussel)
Probo is a social robot that is developed at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel as research platform to study cognitive human-robot interaction (cHRI) with a special focus on children. The robot Probo is designed to act as a social interface, providing a natural interaction while employing human-like social cues and communication modalities. The robot has a fully actuated head, with 20 degrees of freedom, capable of showing facial expressions and emotions. To guarantee safety the robot is powered by compliant actuators which gives together with the soft jacket its huggable and soft character. The robot is currently used for Robot Assisted Therapies (RAT) with autistic children. More information can be found on their website.
Presentation of their new mobile interactive robot platform SCITOS G3.
Some of its features are:
- Autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance
- Graphical user interface
- Evaluation results within the FP7 project CompanionAble
More information can be found on their website.
Exhibition Cyberbotics Ltd
Simulation tools are widely used by robotics researchers to make scientific experiments and design robotics systems that interact with their environment. The Webots software, developed by Cyberbotics Ltd. is used by over 850 universities and corporate research centers worldwide for that purpose. The exhibition booth will demonstrate the capabilities of the Webots software to model the interactions between a mobile robot and a typical human environment, through its simulated sensors and actuators. More information about the Webots software is available from their website.
Exhibition Aldebaran Robotics
NAO is a humanoid robot that is 58cm tall and weighs 5kg developed by
ALDEBARAN Robotics. NAO is an autonomous and interactive robot that is
completely programmable. NAO is used today for research and education
around the world in prestigious universities and research institutes in
the field of AI, human-machine interaction, vision, home assistance and
interaction with autistic children. Meet NAO during ISCR and discover
its huge interactions capacities.
For participants who would like to exhibit their interactive demonstrations at the conference site, please prepare a 1-page summary about the demonstration and send an email to email@example.com
Exhibition booths will be allocated to the demonstrations approved by the ICSR2011 organizing committee.
