Robots Take To The Streets (Video)

The Futuris series on Euronews produced an excellent segment focusing on advanced robotics research taking place in Italy and Spain that will eventually enable robots to co-exist with humans on city sidewalks and streets while performing helpful services.

It’s really interesting to see the difference in approach between the groups in the two countries. To us, the Italian group appears to have paid much more attention to the overall estetic design and outer appearance so that the robot projects an open and welcoming presence, while the Spanish group seems to be more focused on the technical challenges.
