Pepper alla Casa di Riposo ASP Campansi in Siena

Una collaborazione tra Università di Siena e ASP di Siena

IMG_3931 (1)

Che dire ? È stata un’esperienza fantastica che ha arricchito prima di tutto noi del #sirslab. Una robotica che tiene al centro l’uomo è quello per cui noi al Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell’Informazione e Scienze Matematiche, Università di Siena ci stiamo impegnando ogni giorno. Un particolare grazie ai folks del Laboratorio di Robotica tra cui Leonardo Meli, Chiara Gaudeni, Tommaso Lisini, Niccolò Ciavarella e tutti quelli che nel tempo ci hanno aiutato a programmare Pepper. Un grazie particolare a Monica Ulivelli, motore dell’iniziativa all’interno del CDA e a Carlo Rossi, Biancamaria Rossi e a tutta la dirigenza di ASP Viviana Turchi e al consiglio scientifico di cui ho l’onore di fare parte insieme a Luigia Tauro. Grazie ad Alice e al suo team per tutto quanto ha creato e realizzato per questa iniziativa ed infine un immenso grazie agli ospiti del Campansi di Siena che sono la vera anima di tutto quanto è stato realizzato in questi giorni di duro lavoro. Ora rimaniamo in attesa del Documentario. Stay tuned. ps. Grazie anche alla mia amata Elena che è stata con noi. _DP

[jobs] 2 PHD Openings – Highly Wearable Robotics and Highly Wearable Haptics – University of Siena – Deadline July 17, 2017 (2pm).

jobs
Dear future scientists, if you want to start a new research adventure on Wearable Haptics for AR/VR and Teleoperation and on Supernumerary Robotic Limbs to help people with impairments and to define new paradigms of human robot integrations, apply to the two PhD scholarships on
– Supernumerary limbs to compensate and augment the manipulation abilities of humans
– Technologies and methodologies for robotic manipulation and wearable haptics [In cooperation with Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova] now available at the SIRSLab of the University of Siena
The PhD program is in Information Engineering and Science at the University of Siena (one of the two scholarships is in cooperation with the Istituito Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova)
To apply to one of the two scholarships, follow the instruction on line  (this step is mandatory and the deadline is July 17 at 2pm)
and send an email to domenico.prattichizzo@unisi.it.
To know more about the research activities and for any additional questions send me an email.
Thanks for your interest
_Domenico Prattichizzo and the #sirslab team

SIRSLab – Siena Robotics and System Lab – Main Lab Video Presentation – 2017 – #sirslab

The SIRSLab focuses on human centred robotics research and is established at the Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics of University of Siena and is coordinated by Prof. Domenico Prattichizzo (https://prattichizzoblog.wordpress.com). The SIRSLab is very active in the field of Robotics in Italy, and its main focus is on  haptics, wearables, virtual reality, and robotic grasping and manipulation. Main research subjects are:
– control of robotic manipulation and grasping
– bilateral human-robot tele manipulation
– wearable haptic interfaces and wearable robots
– applications of AR and VR
– rehabilitation robotics with application to stroke and parkinson
– telepresence and remote tactile interaction

Our vision is to design highly wearable robotic/haptic interfaces to propose novel paradigms of integration between humans and robots.

The SIRSLab closely cooperates with the Advanced Robotics Lab of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genova.

For any additional information about our research and opportunities to work with us send an email to prattichizzo@ing.unisi.it.

Wearable Haptics is the 2nd most downloaded paper on IEEE Transactions on Haptics

Our paper on Wearable Haptics “Towards wearability in fingertip haptics: a 3-DoF wearable device for cutaneous force feedback.” by Domenico Prattichizzo, Francesco Chinello,Claudio Pacchierotti, Monica Malvezzi. published on IEEE Transactions on Haptics, 6(4):506-516, 2013 is the second most downloaded paper on the IEEE Transactions on Haptics journal as shown yesterday the the EIC Lynette Jones at #whc2017 at the World Haptics Conference in Munich. The first one is a review/survey paper on medical training simulators. #sirslab

Thimbles, rings, armbands: a challenging road towards wearability in haptics at #WH2017

Thimbles, rings, armbands: a challenging road towards wearability in haptics is the ‘new’ title of my talk at the Workshop on Wearable Haptics in Munich on next Tuesday at the World Haptic Conference in Munich #WHC17 http://sirslab.diism.unisi.it/whc17-wearable-haptics/ _DP #sirslab.
