We had a SPEXOR booth at the largest robotics conference IROS2018 where we successfully demonstrated the passive version of our prototype to the numerous participants of the conference.
We organized a workshop titled Exoskeleton design through optimization and adaptive control at the IEEE RAS International Conference on Humanoid Robots (HUMANOIDS 2017) that were held in Birmingham, UK during November 15-17, 2017.
The aim of the workshop was to bridge the gap between optimality principles and adaptive control to create a new generation of exoskeletons that would efficiently and unobtrusively operate on the human body. The main theme was how to leverage exoskeleton research with novel adaptive control concepts and optimization methods in order to advance it into a key technology.
Spexor and five other European research projects (AXO-SUIT, BALANCE, MovAiD, Robo-Mate, Symbitron) met in Amsterdam on November 28 to discuss advancements in exoskeleton technology in order to create synergies and generate new ideas for further developments and common implementation of results.
The event was organized by Common Exploitation Booster, a support service for facilitating exploitation of research results of ongoing Research and Innovation Projects under FP7 and H2020.
We co-organized two workshops at the 2016 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2016) that were held in Daejeon, Korea during October 9-14, 2016:
SPEXOR took part at European Robotics Forum 2016 in Ljubljana. The project was presented at The New H2020 Robotics Projects in the SPARC Strategy organized by Cécile HUET from European Commission, and at Wearable Robots Moving out of the Lab organized by Jan Veneman from Tecnalia Research and Innovation and José Pons from Spanish Research Council.
