Robotics @ POLIMI - OpenLabs 2017
In the framework of the European Robotics Week the Politecnico di Milano opens the robotics labs to the public: press, researchers, students, industry and families.

The European Robotics Week offers every year one week of various robotics related activities across Europe for the general public, highlighting the growing importance of robotics in a wide variety of application areas.
The Week also aims at inspiring technology education in students of all ages to pursue careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) related fields.

Robotics is one of the main lines of research at the Politecnico since 1973. The multi-disciplinary activities in the field of robotics is mainly carried out by the Dipartimento di Elettronica, Informazione e Bioingegneria (DEIB), and by the Dipartimento di Meccanica, through the work of a few specialized laboratories:

AIRLab: the Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Lab is specialized in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Robotics and Bio-mimetic and Computer Vision.

CartCasLab: the Computer Assisted RadioTherapy and Surgery Laboratory is responsible for Surgery planning, Radiosurgery and Imaging therapy with robotic holder.

MERLIN: the MEchatronics and Robotics Laboratory for INnovation is active in the fields of Mechatronics, Industrial Robotics and Movement Control.

M&SSLab: the Mechatronics & Smart Structures Lab develops innovative solutions in the field of Mechatronics and Industrial Robotics.

NearLab: the NeuroEngineering and Medical Robotics Laboratory deals mainly with Surgery and Rehabilitation Robotics.

VPLab: the Virtual Prototyping Laboratory is active in the field of Development and Testing of Virtual Prototypes for Industrial Robotics.

During the visit, it will be possible to see some of the autonomous Robots participating in the European Robotics League, a competition that scientifically evaluates their intelligence.
