Day of the Exoskeleton
In logistics, maintenance, construction, and manufacturing, heavy work still frequently occurs. Exoskeletons supporting the worker are not yet widely applied. But this may change in the near future.
You are invited for the exclusive Day of the Exoskeleton, organized by i-Botics. The Joint Innovation Centre for Interaction Robotics, i-Botics, is founded by TNO and University Twente.
During this afternoon you will be informed about the ‘state-of-the-art’ of exoskeletons, potential short and long term advantages that exoskeletons provide, and new developments in the technology. Moreover, four exoskeletons will be physically present!
