Robot Workshop for Girls

Different workshops were held at the “Medizintechnikschau” in Hall in Tyrol for children to get in touch with medical technology. The Research Division for eHealth and Telemedicine participated with a workshop that was focussed on robotics especially for girls between 12-16 years.

After a short introduction to robotics, the participants could try out programming the robot NAO. The girls learned how to develop simple health related applications. One such example enabled the robot to recognize the face of a person and then ask him/her about his/her general condition. According to the answer given, the robot gave some advice.
