Christmas fund-raiser at our faculty

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 us and the brand robotics@fer.hr with the goal of raising funds for the Autism Association Zagreb. We hereby invite you to join us at this unusual and exciting event!

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 projects, our lab members worked with NAO robots to help diagnose this disorder in children. Because of this connection ASD, we 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!
