On June, we attended ISEK 2018, with a WS entitled ‘How good is my robot? The increasing importance of benchmarking in wearable robotics research”, stressing the importance of having quantitative indicators to measure the effects of robotic technologies on humans, in different application domains such as Healthcare and Industry. EUROBENCH was represented by Diego Torricelli, from the Neural Rehabilitation Group of the Instituto Cajal (CSIC), who took the opportunity to present the upcoming First Open Call. It was great to perceive real expectation from the community for standardized methods to assess bipedal locomotion in realistic “out-of-the-lab” environments.
