Talk Title: Telepresence with Humanoid Robots as Enabler for 5G URLLC

About the speaker: Being fascinated by the complexity and beauty of everything, Rafael Hostettler always had a hard time to limit himself to a single thing. That’s why he has an MSc. in Computational Science from ETH Zurich, where he learnt to simulate just about everything on computers, so he didn’t have to. Now, he’s building robots that imitate the building principles of the human musculoskeletal system and travels the world with Roboy.

About the company: Roboy project's goal is to advance humanoid robotics to the state where its robots are just as good as a human body. The human body is a marvel from a robotics perspective: it’s agile, strong, soft, dynamic, self-repairing, self-building and completely silent in operation.
