The ADAPT project started in January 2017 and will finish in June 2021. It is cofinanced by the European Regional Development Fund within the framework of the INTERREG VA France (Channel) England programme. The project focuses on four main topics:

  • Smart and connected Electrical Powered Wheelchairs (EPW)
  • An EPW Simulator platform using virtual reality
  • Training of healthcare professionals in assistive technologies/social assistive robotics
  • Formalised agreements between research institutions and companies

ADAPT will be represented at two up-coming events:

IROS Workshop, October 2018, Madrid, Spain
“Assistance and Service Robotics in a Human Environment: From Personal Mobility Aids to Rehabilitation-Oriented Robotics”

“Assistive Robotics & Everyday Life” Conference, December 7th 2018, Rennes, France
