Members of the ETF Robotics research group attended “Smart Regions with Smart Robots” conference. Event was hosted by the Committee of Regions (Brussels), and organized by the European Commission Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology. This meeting aimed to join forces at all levels, in order to provide benefit from robotics technology to our society.
ETF robotics research group starts its participation in the “Feasibility Study for Serbian Manufacturing Innovation Hub – FS4SMIH” European project, within I4MS (ICT Innovation for Manufacturing SMEs) initiative. The FS4SMIH project is funded from the larger Horizon2020 ReconCell project (A Reconfigurable robot workCell for fast set-up of automated assembly processes in SMEs – ReconCell). In the next six months researchers will thoroughly study potentials of robotics in Serbia.
ETF Robotics students Kosta Jovanovic and Predrag Milosavljevic were members of the winning team during Winter School on Variable Stiffness Actuators, held in Rome, Italy, February 20-25, 2015. Winter school was organized by Natural Machine Motion Initiative (NMMI) and project Saphari. The topic of the school and competiotion itself was control of robots driven by variable stiffness actuators (VSA).
