RAPP partners visit INRIA laboratory in Sophia Antipolis, France

On day 1 of the RAPP 1st Technical Meeting organized on February 17-18, 2014 in Sophia Antipolis, France RAPP partners were invited by their host INRIA to visit the laboratory premises on site.

The RAPP partners have had the privilege to see demonstrations of prototype robots like the wire crane Marionet-Assist, providing assistance to elderly or handicaped people, as well as demonstrations of pedagogical low cost modular robots intended to illustrate scientific concepts from various domains (not only robotics) to different audiences.

This visit was also and above all the opportunity for the RAPP partners to see the ANG-light smart rollator developped by INRIA that will be used during the project to assess the impact of RAPP innovations and showcase under real conditions how the RAPP paradigm can be applied.
