HRI2008 show, Amsterdam

At the International Conference about Human-Robot interaction, National Instruments and LEGO teamed up to show their products.

Together with Daniel Wittenaar, I attended to help out Steven Canvin (LEGO) and Andy Bell (NI). We had some real great new models on display (picture 2 and 3).




There was a Competition for university students to build a model demonstrating the Human-Robot interaction. They were given just one retail box and a RFID sensor with tags (picture 4, is the complete group and their robots).
Look forward for highlights on this event the next weeks.

It looks like you guys had a great time - wish the rest of us could have been there, but thanks for including the rest of us with this post. What were the highlights for you?

Regarding the balancing NXTway, I actually have a similar picture of an earlier model...

Hi Brian, the highlights were:

1) Labview powered NXT Stand alone
2) I did do a rebuild of Philo's NXTWay, but due to light conditions I could not get it to balance properly.
3) NXT build into the PF-ATAT (replacing the PF motor, with a NXT motor) by Daniel.
4) NXT goal keeper by Daniel.
5) Several real interesting lectures,about Robot-Human interaction.
6) Great models by the studens, but more on those later.

What abilities did the NXT add to the AT-AT walker?
