Robots Podcast #76 is the first part of a two-part series focusing on European robotics. At the invitation of EUnited Robotics, interviews were conducted at the European Robotics Forum 2011, held April 6-8, in Västerås, Sweden, jointly organized by the European Robotics Technology Platform (EUROP) and the European Robotics Research Network (EURON), and hosted by Robotdalen. The first interview is with Jessica Karlsson, Communications Manager for Robotdalen. Robotdalen represents a Swedish initiative aimed at enabling commercial success of new ideas and research in robotics. Next up is Ola Svanström, Head of Product Management for ABB Robotics, a leader in industrial robotics. Finally, we hear from Professor Moshe Shoham head of the Robotics Laboratory at Technion, Israel’s Institute of Technology. As always, these interviews are preceded by a short news segment, this time mentioning a boxing robot, called Punching Pro, and Willow Garage's new TurtleBot platform.
