The famous Christmas market in Zagreb has just become one interesting event richer: On Wednesday, 19th December, 10-16h, visitors of UNIZG-FER will have the opportunity to enjoy mulled wine, tea and brownies or waffles, which are special because they will be served by - robots! This unusual event is organized by our friends from LARICS and the brand email@example.com with the goal of raising funds for the Autism Association Zagreb. We enthusiastically support this unusual and exciting event and hereby invite you to join us!
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication. As part of the ADORE project, LARICS members worked with NAO robots to help diagnose this disorder in children. Because of this connection ASD, they chose this specific association to give the raised funds to. The robots Franka, Baxter, Pepper, and NAO will be taking part in the fun-raiser, but they won't be there just for show - Pepper will take your order, Franka will prepare it and Baxter will serve it to you. At the same time, the NAO robots will be taking care of the atmosphere. Overall, this event is an innovative chance for you to learn about robots, treat yourself and help a noble cause!
