NCSR-D participated in the Athens edition of Researchers' Night that took place at the Hellenic Cosmos Cultural Centre, and also hosted a pre-event at NCSR-D premises. The RADIO team gave live demonstrations of recently developed prototypes ranging from human-robot interaction to autonomous navigation and to pattern recognition. All three technologies are most relevant to the RADIO system, touching upon the system’s ability to be useful, to operate in a human environment, and to collect medically-relevant data.
