In addition to the participation in the seminar we visited Dr. Ismail Khalil and Dr. Karin Anna Hummel from the Institute of Cooperation of Johannes Kepler University research interests lay within human-machine and machine-machine interaction, and also IoT sensors. We share the belief that telepresence robots could strongly benefit from the results of Ismail and Karin research.
Professor Zsolt Lavicza our research group met the next day shared his considerations on STEM education research methods that our EuroteQ course on social interactions using telepresence robots will greatly benefit from. We are looking forward to future cooperation.
The campus of Johannes Kepler University is worth a separate mention, as an example of a stylish and at the same time cozy place to work and rest, located in the most picturesque landscape one could imagine. We can only envy our colleagues, but in a polite way, of course.
Travel tip: although there is an airport in Linz be sure to take the train, otherwise you might end up being the only person who took a flight to the city. In addition to that dubious achievement train schedule is much more flexible.
