Dries Bovijn & Stan Notebaert   | Founders of OPSORO

Workshop| IoT & Sociale Robots| Dinsdag 11 april | 15.30 – 16.45 uur

Na een doctoraalstudie van Prof. Jelle Saldien waarin Probo (dure, complexe, sociale robot voor therapie) ontwikkeld werd, heeft Cesar Vandevelde een verdergaande studie uitgevoerd naar open-source robots, waarbij ook Ono tot leven gekomen is. Ono is een sociale, expressieve robot die bestaat uit modules of bouwblokken die je zelf kan 3D printen of laseren. OPSORO staat voor Open Platform voor Sociale Robots. Het maakt gebruik van modulaire bouwblokken die je zelf kan produceren, ook is de software volledig open-source en worden applicaties gebouwd door de community. Hoewel je OPSORO robots eenvoudig kan aansturen met kant en klare apps, is het gebruik van de visuele programmeertaal erg populair geworden en kan iedereen zo zelf gebruik maken van een hele reeks API’s. Facebook likes omtoveren in een knipoog? Weerbericht voorlezen aan oma wanneer het tijd is om te eten? Email-subscriptions omtoveren in een sprekende poedel voor op kantoor? Wat zou jij met OPSORO bouwen? OPSORO heeft de ambitie om het globale en Open Platform van Sociale Robotica te worden.
