Opening of our ABC Robotics Center
Yesterday, the inauguration of the Antal Bejczy Center for Intelligent Robotics was held at Óbuda University in the presence of the majority of Hungary's robotics folks. Medical robotics, including teleoperation and control for surgical systems and robotic training platforms are among the key research areas. Tony Bejczy, research lead at NASA JPL, founder of the IEEE RAS is the honorary president of the Advisory Board that includes senior robotics people from all around the globe.
"The ABC Center for Intelligent Robotics is devoted to promote the scientific and technological advancement of robotics, primarily for service applications. It was created as a reply to the rising demand of integrated education and application-oriented development in robotics. It is an independent platform within the Óbuda University, extensively relying on a national and international network of key partner institutions and companies in Europe and North America, predominantly. It acts as a research center of excellence, and has three major focuses for operation:
- Cutting edge development in the fundamentals of robotics—including hardware and software; mechatronics, control and application.
- Bridging the development projects to particular applications, tapping into the scientific results to solve the emerging issues of modern society.
- Disseminating current knowledge about robotics both in structured form via university courses and to the wider public.
