Robot House 2.0 introduced to academic landscape

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.

University of Oslo uses Robot House for care research

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.
