Robospot: European Commission launches the meeting point for the online robotics community

There is now a European hub where it is possible to explore non-technical aspects of robotics that impact society and our lives. Robospot: The Responsible Robotics Knowledge Hub is a platform created within the Robotics4EU project, free and open to anyone. 

Brussels, August 30, 2022 - Robotics technology influences every aspect of work and home. It has the potential to positively transform lives and work practices, raise efficiency and safety levels and provide enhanced levels of service. Therefore, the topics of robotics are transversal to all audiences and the solutions presented in this area concern the whole society - from researchers or industry workers to educators, from decision-makers to curious citizens.

Building on this idea, a new and open European online community was born to promote the widespread and responsible adoption of robotics in our society. Robospot presents a hub focused on non-technical aspects of robotics, such as ethics in the areas of healthcare, inspection, and maintenance of infrastructure, agri-food, or agile production.
