On the 9th of November University of Twente host our yearly DSI symposium on human-centered robotics, where science, technology, society and business meet. In the morning, there will be the opportunity to visit the various robotics labs at the University of Twente and learn about the recent advancements in research. For the afternoon, a broad and interactive program is prepared in which you will get to know more about the 3 themes of the upcoming Robotics Centre: healthcare, social and industrial robotics.
- Healthcare robotics: Cure & Care = surgical robotics, image-guided surgical robotics, exoskeletons, prosthetics, etc.
- Industrial robotics: High precision technology & Inspection and Maintenance = pipe inspection robots, high precision control and manipulation, maintenance robots, cobots, etc.
- Social robotics: personal robots, surveillance robots, companion robots, teaching robots, etc.
The Robotics Symposium is particularly interesting if you are a researcher of a university (of applied sciences), work for a robotics company, you are a policy maker, you study in robotics.
