Robotics and assistive technologies can improve mobility for persons with a disability. Such technologies are diverse: powered wheelchairs, prosthetic limbs, wearable exoskeletons, etc. Safe and efficient design of robotic assistance remains a challenging issue. In this workshop, the invited speakers will address such issues by demonstrating recent research progress and successful application cases. This workshop is a part of the QMUL Cybathlon 2020 team activity. The QMUL Cybathlon 2020 student team will present their progress during the workshop.

Registration is required (FREE): Eventbrite link
