Partner NCSR "Demokritos" opens new robotic research space in Athens, Greece

An innovative research space simulating a real home which is monitored by advanced robotic equipment was launched in October 2016 at partner NCSR "Demokritos" premises in the context of the RADIO project.

The research space, which was recently completed with the help of companies IKEA Greece and KOTSOVOLOS, is situated at the Library of partner NCSR "Demokritos".

Second Radio Plenary Meeting

RADIO held its second plenary meeting on the 13th of May 2016 in Brussels. RADIO partners had the chance to discuss current progress and to finalize the details of the intermediate phase pilot studies.

First Radio WP3/WP4 Technical Meeting

The RADIO technical partners held their first technical meeting on 21st and 22nd of April 2016 in Athens. The technical partners discussed current progress towards the intermediate trials at FSL this summer and tested how the ADL recognition components developed by different partners integrate and interact. Moreover, ROBOTNIK presented the simulated environment they have prepared from FSL floorplan, which will be used to test robot navigation prior to actual deployment this June and RUB presented their work on robot and FPGA integration.

Radio@Athens Science Festival 2016

Athens Science Festival 2016 took place from the 5th until the 10th of April in Athens, Greece and was visited by more than 31.000 people! The RADIO team of NCSR ‘Demokritos’ presented RADIO on the 9th and 10th of April. Our goal was to familiarize the general public with the RADIO approach to clinical monitoring and, specifically, with the distinction between using a camera and using abstract information extracted from the visual signal captured by a camera.

"Zacharias" presented to the public

"Zacharias", Robotnik’s Turtlebot2 acquired in the context of RADIO Project, made its first steps at the premises of Embedded System Design and Application Laboratory (ESDA Lab - http://esda-lab.cied.teiwest.gr) of RADIO partner Technological Educational Institute of Western Greece (TWG) and was recently presented to the public.

Zacharias was exhibited by Assistant Professor Nikolaos Voros, Head of ESDA Lab, at TWG at Antirion during a high school visit and made a big impression! Watch the short video here:

Data collection, the first step to building the human pattern recognition methods of RADIO

RADIO medical requirements concern monitoring Activities of Daily Living (ADL). During the summer’s usability pilots at Fondazione Santa Lucia’s premises, among other ADLs, we are going to record how long it takes to a) stand up out of a chair and b) walk 4m. But what are the steps to develop a method that actually monitors these ADLs?
