The BioRobotics Institute will be present at Lucca Comics&Games 2013 during the special event Lucca Comics&Science, a series of meetings, sponsored by CNR - Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, that aims to strengthen the connection between science and entertainment.
On 31 October, four projects of the BioRobotics institute will be showed and among them there is Robot-Era with the domestic platform DoRo. SSSA PhD students Raffaele Limosani and Alessandro Manzi will display the platform and its main functionalities.

After designing and developing the Domestic, Condominium and Outdoor robotic platforms and defining the Robot-Era services, the first experimental loop is just started in Peccioli (Italy) on July and will start in Ängen (Sweden) on September. During the first experimental loop that will lasts six months until December 2013, 70 senior citizens 65+ years old will be recruited to use and test the Robot-Era system, composed of the three robots and the AmI infrastructure, in the realistic indoor and outdoor environments of the Peccioli Town Lab.
L’Istituto di Biorobotica della Scuola Sant’Anna Superiore di Pisa in collaborazione con il Comune di Peccioli comunica l'inizio della fase di sperimentazione del progetto di ricerca europeo Robot-Era che coinvolge molti centri di ricerca e industrie in Europa.
PERCHÉ NASCE ROBOT-ERA
Nei prossimi anni in Europa un abitante su tre avrà più di 65 anni. L’invecchiamento della popolazione non deve essere visto come fattore di instabilità sociale ma va piuttosto indagato per mettere in luce le novità nelle relazioni, nei bisogni e nelle potenzialità che una società che invecchia è in grado di esprimere.
The International Summer School on Social Human-Robot Interaction welcomes PhD students and early career researchers for an intensive five days of lectures and ateliers covering a wide range of topics in social HRI.
It receives support from the FP7 ALIZ-E, ACCOMPANY and ROBOT-ERA projects, the euCognition Network of Excellence and the IEEE RAS Summer Schools programme.
Interested students need to apply to the summer school via the online application process. Applications are accepted until 10 May 2013. There are a limited number of scholarships available which cover participation and accommodation fees. Full fees are available to non-European participants, while European participants can apply for reduced fees.
