HRI-EU is giving you the chance to focus on your passion for 2D/3D designs and innovative creations in robotics. Apply your skills to solve a real-world design issue!

HRI-EU has set up an interconnected multi-entity system that runs all day interacting with its surrounding.
The multi-entity system consists of a "smart room", including visual and auditory sensors, large screens, a table-top robot and a mobile robot platform.
It will be able to understand and produce speech, recognize people and their gestures, and the mobile assistant robot can manipulate objects.
