Day 18: Sapienza Universita do Roma—Soccer Robots and Human Interaction

Our first full day in Rome started off with a technical visit to Sapienza Universita do Roma (University of Rome), and their RoCoCo Lab and Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering. The university was located really close to the hotel we were staying at, so it was only a short walk away.

 Our first full day in Rome started off with a technical visit to Sapienza Universita do Roma (University of Rome), and their RoCoCo Lab and Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering. The university was located really close to the hotel we were staying at, so it was only a short walk away.



We were given a tour by the incredibly generous Professor Daniele Nardi through the labs and their various projects and live presentations. One of the department’s biggest projects was their work on physical human-robot interaction, where robots either stopped or moved around humans interfering with their path.



We also got a live presentation of their soccer-playing robots that compete with other colleges in RoboCup.



GOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAALLLL!!



After our tour, the group split off from there to explore more of Rome. Some went off to the gardens of Rome, while others went to the shopping district to look for clothing or gifts for family and friends.


Later that night, some of us had one last "treat yourself" meal at Pierluigi. From there, some went to Gay Village downtown while others went back to the hotel. Overall, it was a fantastic day in Rome. Tomorrow will be our last technical visit to the National Research Council.
