CROWDBOT, an European Collaborative project enables robots to freely navigate and assist humans in crowded areas. - Today’s moving robots stop when a human, or any obstacle is too close, to avoid impact. This prevents robots from entering packed areas and effectively performing in a high dynamic environment. CROWDBOT aims to fill in the gap in knowledge on close interactions between robots and humans in motion.

Experimenting the flexible and efficient Android library on Pepper’s tablet - Light and flexible, Lottie is a popular mobile library to make 2D animations on Android devices such as Pepper’s tablet. Indeed, Pepper is not just a voice user interface, but the tablet animations are very helpful in improving the interactive efficiency of the robot. At SoftBank Robotics we already tried out Lottie and there is what we found.
The new permanent exhibition allows us to present authentic working robots - The Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, monster in the field of scientific exhibitions in Paris, chose robotics as the subject of its latest permanent exhibition, and SBR is one of their partners.
Meeting the SoftBank Robotics Project Manager - The Robots exhibition runs for 5 years starting from April 2, 2019 at the Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (Paris 19th arrondissement). The exhibition invites the visitor to ponder on their vision of robotics and to get acquainted with robotic science and industries. This exhibition shows real robots at work, how they operate, the state of research in the field and the concrete implications for our society. SBRE has co-conceived 3 pieces of the exhibition in collaboration with Universcience. Christophe DUPOUY, Project Manager, talks about his experience.
