2012-07-27 GiraffPlus Meeting in Pisa, July 2012

A very productive and well organised meeting took place among the partners in Pisa to discuss the GiraffPlus architecture in more detail. Among the results were a presentation of the integration of Tunstall sensors in the Giraffplus middleware,  an agreement on the architecture which illustrated the different components  and how they will communicate, and a number of demonstrations of individual components (e.g. fall sensor, Giraff robot). This meeting represented a key moment in the technical progress of the project where many important decisions that will influence the course of the GiraffPlus project were made.

The consortium would like to extend a  particular thank you to Francesco Furfari the CNR-ISTI for organising and hosting the meeting.
