A day of robotics adventure

News | June 9, 2023

On Saturday 3 June, the ICD 'Robo' event took place in parallel with Philips Drachten's family day. ICD and other participating companies gave impressive demonstrations on interaction with innovative robots. As such, they provided participants with a spectacular robotics experience in which the robots almost literally got in the way of the visitors. 

Various demonstrations of the latest developments in robotics were given in the SKILL building. From industrial applications to advanced healthcare robots, there was something to see for everyone. A highlight was the demonstration of the Spot robot, which effortlessly walked up and down stairs, surprising young and old alike.

According to the visitors, it was fascinating to see these technological advances up close and learn more about the robot industry and the technologies involved. The day was not only informative, it was also inspiring and entertaining for all attendees.
