Leuven.Inc Visionary seminar: Assistive Robotics Technology

Towards a sustainable work environment for care givers and lifelong mobility for the ageing citizen

Organised by Leuven.Inc in cooperation with imec and Leuven-MTC.

The ageing or mobility-challenged citizen needs assistance to keep up with activities of daily living and to participate actively in tomorrow’s society. This will put an ever increasing burden on the financial resources of society and on the human resources of the care sector unless well-designed assistive technology can increase the self-reliance of the citizen and free care givers of time-consuming tasks, enabling them to focus on high value personalized interaction.

In this visionary seminar, Key Enabling Technologies will be highlighted: mechatronics for assistive robotics and wearable exoskeletons, 3D printing for personalized exoskeletons and rehabilitation devices, integration of rehabilitation practices and human movement sciences with advanced robotics. Organizational, financial and safety implications will be integrated in the presentations. Finally, an overview of ongoing applied and industrial research will give a preview of the next generation of exoskeletons, prosthetics and orthotics.

Open Bedrijvendag 2014

imec, Leuven, België

Imec’s onderzoek brengt je leven naar ‘the next level’. Bijvoorbeeld door onderzoek te doen dat zal leiden tot slimmere en zuinigere computers en smartphones; sensoren en lab-op-chips die je gezondheid in het oog houden; en zonnecellen die tot de verbeelding spreken van architecten én mode-ontwerpers.
Ook tijdens de Open Bedrijvendag brengen we je naar ‘the next level’. Op elke verdieping van onze toren belichten we een deel van ons onderzoek en van imec in het algemeen. Kies de verdiepingen die jou interesseren, los een vraag op per verdieping en krijg zo toegang tot de volgende verdieping. Los je vijf vragen van ons torenspel op, dan wacht je een mooie verrassing helemaal bovenaan in de toren.  Read more

VISION Leading world trade fair for machine vision

Messe, Stuttgart, Germany | Booth: 1c83

By applying narrow-band spectral filters at pixel-level using semiconductor CMOS compatible thin-film processing, imec’s technology enables hyperspectral image sensor solutions with extreme compactness, low weight, high reliability and proven capabilities to be mass produced at low cost in volume. Three different types of hyperspectral image sensor solutions will be showcased and demonstrated this year: one 100 bands linescan design, one 32 bands snapshot tiled design, and a new snapshot mosaic designs featuring 16 bands in a matrix of 4x4 per-pixel filters. From industrial inspection to aerial photogrammetry, security to spectroscopy, medical fluorescence to astronomy, imec’s imaging innovations allow our partners unprecedented capabilities - and competitive advantage. Read more
