On 9th and 10th of May 2019 Symposium for hospitality and facility services organized by Inselspital Bern took place. One focus topic was the technological development and digitalization that could assist in meeting the needs in the hospitality sector. Since F&P Robotics is a pioneer in the use of robots in hospitality and care, we were asked to give a speech and present Lio at the symposium.
Robots in the care – Who will help us when we are helpless?
On 18 May 2019, one of the 6 Swiss WRO regional competitions took place in the gymnasium school Untermoos in Zurich-Altstetten. The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is an international robot competition to inspire children and young people for science and technology. Last year F&P supported the team 0010 0100 at the WRO.
F&P celebrated the internal launch of the barrobot “Barney”! Shareholders, customers partners and other guests were invited to come to our headquarter in Glattbrugg and to celebrate with us. Barney is the first Robot Bartender who can directly interact with guests.
The Newspaper “Tagesanzeiger” is one of the most famous ones in Switzerland. They published an article about Lio and its use in nursing homes.
The ZDF television channel broadcast a report on this year’s Altenpflege exhibition in Nuremberg. The robots Lio, Guido and Massimo attracted a lot of attention, which is why ZDF asked us if they could make some film shots of the robots and broadcast them.
We look back on the past five years and are proud of what we have achieved.
