Our Cross-Cutting Challenge (CCC) proposal for the 2018 Haptics Symposium has been accepted. In San Francisco on March 25, 2018 we will present at the Haptic Symposium the CCC on “Expanding sensory interactions: The path to intelligent clothes and objects able to change the way we communicate with the world.”
*From now through December 22nd,* individual keynote and interactive discussion proposals can be submitted – see the details below. _DP
The Department of Information Engineering and Mathematics of University of Siena organizes, in collaboration with the Liaison Office, the Seminar “La protezione delle idee nella ricerca in robotica e ICT per l’healthcare” on Wednesday July 6, 2016.
Cari Amici (di Milano e non), ho il piacere di invitarvi al Edison Innovation Week che si terrà a Milano la prossima settimana. Il giorno 8 alle ore 17 terrò un talk su “Making a new health: un robot da indossare”. Ci sono tanti talk interessanti ecco il programma
Per partecipare è sufficiente REGISTRARSI A http://www.edison.it/it/IW16
Ci vediamo a Milano

It is a honor for me to announce that we, the #sirslab won the pretigious Best Demonstration Award of the 2016 IEEE Haptic Symposium in Philadelphia. The demonstration has the title “The hRing as a Wearable Haptic Interface for Extra Robotic Fingers” by Giovanni Spagnoletti, Irfani Hussein, Claudio Pacchierotti, Gionata Salvietti and Domenico Prattichizzo. Congratulation folks !!!! Keep growing !!!
Silicon Valley 2016, Intuitive Surgical Technology Research Grant Symposium http://www.intuitivesurgical.com/
Have a look to the photo album of the event.
– The idea we had in our lab #sirslab about using the cutaneous-only (no kinesthetic) haptic feedback in robot-assisted surgery, like the da Vinci system, was a great idea and it got the prestigious Intuitive Surgical Research Grant in 2015 (the only Italians) with a collaborative project with University of Pennsylvania (K.J. Kuchenbecker). Claudio Pacchierotti and I have been in California to present the results of the research based on our idea. We gave talks to surgeons and engineers of Intuitive Surgical in Santa Clara in the Silicon Vally and it was amazing. A lot of great conversations, ideas, and comments. We are coming back to Italy with more energy :-).
If you want to know more about the idea of cutaneous feedback in surgical robotics have a look to this paper

and to the paper where the idea has been implemented in the da Vinci System in
