ERF_WebcamThe sixth edition of the European Robotics Forum brought together at least 600 scientists, companies, and robotics officials. We were there to capture pitches for the latest wave of robotics projects funded by the European Commission under Horizon2020. We asked roboticists about the big picture behind their project, the challenges ahead, and the desired outcome.

This is the second part of a three-part series, check out the first five videos here.
