Service Robots and Exoskeletons

Service Robots and Exoskeletons

This training aims to offer insight in state of the art service robotics and exoskeletons. It will provide knowledge on service robots in various fields, in particular mobile robots in smart manufacturing and factory logistics. The training will demonstrate how easy it is to program a mobile robot. In addition, various exoskeletons, both in industry and healthcare, will be presented, including their benefits and limitations. Concrete examples and practical demoing of a medical lower-limb exoskeleton.
