2014-03-20 GiraffPlus Project Presented at the European Robotics Forum

On March 13th 2014, the GiraffPlus project was presented by Andrea Orlandini from CNR-ISTC at the European Robotics Forum (ERF) in Rovereto, Italy. In particular, Andrea was invited as GiraffPlus representative in the workshop "Trends and Issues in the Integration between Service Robots and Smart Environments".

After the start in San Sebastian in 2010, this annual event has quickly become the most influential meeting of the European robotics community. More than 400 researchers, engineers, managers, and a growing number of entrepreneurs and business people from all over Europe met to discuss topics and contents, which also have an immediate impact on the road mapping process for Robotics in Europe.

The theme of ERF 2014 was "City of Robots" and explored the interaction between people and robotic technology and devices, which also was deployed and demonstrated across the city.
