Since summer 2020, two NAO robots, GAIA and NaoMI, have been traveling through Europe on different routes - each month they visit a different city. This exciting project of the Goethe-Institut in Munich is part of the project “Generation A = Algorithmus - Nachdenken über Künstliche Intelligenz”, which aims to bring the discussion about Artificial Intelligence to broader social classes. The RoboticLab is responsible for preparing the NAO robots and providing technical support on their travels.
The NAO robot Ada of the public library in Frankfurt am Main had its first use as a reading robot (press release). A tour through the city's public libraries is planned. RoboticLab is happy about the lively and exciting cooperation with the team of the Frankfurt public library.
ROS-E is a current research project of the RoboticLab team, a completely in-house development. A robot used by students in project work and internships to adapt and expand hardware and software as required. ROS-E is still a rough prototype yet made of a wooden frame, in the next few months it will get a new 3D-printed housing. The vision is to use ROS-E as a social robot buddy in the future.
