Robot House will join .helloworld@Herts Computing Fair and Fun Day again this upcoming weekend. During the whole of the event, two PhD students will present Robot House research and provide the possibility to live interact with Pepper, observe its capabilities, and gain insights about its inner workings.more ...
Robot House contributes to dialogue between science and religion. We invited members of the Church of England to visit Robot House and discuss about our robotics research and how that can relate to faith.more ...
We are excited to join .helloworld - Hertfordshire Hackathon with a Fetch and a Pepper robot this upcoming weekend.
During the whole of the event, we will provide the possibility to live interact with a Pepper and a Fetch robot, observe their capabilities, and gain insights about their funcional principles.
An academic launch day introduced the upgraded Robot House as a state of the art facility that can support research in ambient-assisted and companion technology, in an authentic environment. Besides showcasing the infrastructure and data, graduate students have been involved in presenting their research during the event highlighting how the robot house enabled them in their doctoral project.
During the launch, visitors explored the robot house through different exhibits in an open atmosphere that promoted discussion and knowledge exchange. A second launch event is planned for engaging with local companies, regarding how they may benefit from the infrastructure available at the Robot House, to support their product testing.
Researchers in the Robot House are beginning a new project which explores the link between effective safety performance of a robot and its social credibility.
Dr Catherine Menon and Dr Patrick Holthaus are using the facility for the SocCred project, which is funded by the Assuring Autonomy International Programme.more ...
The Robot House has welcomed a visiting researcher from University of Oslo’s Research Group for Robotics and Intelligent Systems (ROBIN).
Doctoral research fellow Trenton Schulz is using the facility to design new, user-centred adaptive technologies for use in care settings, as part of the Group’s Multimodal Elderly Care Systems (MECS) project, funded by the Research Council of Norway.
The overall aim of the project is to create and evaluate mobile robotic systems that can sense, learn and predict future events in a home environment, such as falls among older people.
The Adaptive Systems Research Group at the University of Hertfordshire is organising two events for the UK Robotics Week 2018 that introduce school children to robotics research and our Robot House residents.more ...
