On the 24th of January 2019, Firefly attended the Robotics Symposium at the University of Technology in Eindhoven. There was an interesting program of different speakers, including professors from the university but also the head of robotics from Google Deepmind, who addressed all aspects of robotics. Not only the technical robotics field was relevant here but also ethical or pyschological research in the context of robotics was discussed.
During the day we had our own stand at the Tech Square where we presented our team and the project we are working on. We had a lot of interesting conversations with visitors of the symposium and other teams or companies that were presenting themselves on the Tech Square. At the end of the day we had gathered new ideas for future projects and created enthousiasm for our project amongst the visitors of our stand, so it was a successful day!
