Students from Trinity College Dublin

Meet Jack Lynam and Bobby Gillham, current 4th year students of mechanical and manufacturing engineering in Trinity College, Dublin.

They are involved in a project with University of Sao Paulo and their task is to create an interface between a human and a personal assistant robot. The robot would have the ability to complete certain tasks and assist whoever required it.

The students visited Orwell and Elgin on Friday 13th November and spoke with Residents and Staff about the possible use of the personal assistant – to work with staff in their daily work and also with Residents and their activities of daily living.
