The project ECHORD++ (European Clearing House for Open Robotics Development Plus Plus) is established in order to stimulate the interaction between robot manufacturers, researchers and users. This goal will be achieved by implementing three different instruments: the Experiments, Public end-user Driven Technological Innovation (PDTI), and the Robotics Innovation Facilities (RIFs).
TechnoDeal, as ECHORD++ partner, is responsible of the following activities:
  • Logistic management of transportation and accommodation of Peccioli RIF users
  • Maintenance of Peccioli RIF (equipment and infrastructures)
  • Employment and/or substitution of infrastructures that could be helpful to develop realistic tests
  • Involvement of end users with the aim to create a realistic testing environment so that the bring-to-market process could be facilitated
  • Involvement of potential external users (SMEs, Universities, etc) that could be interested in the RIF equipment or facilities to develop robotic solutions
  • Realization of new infrastructures for Peccioli RIF, according to specific requests of external users and/or experimenters of EHCORD++ project
  • Promotion and support in the organization of dissemination events (workshops, info days, open days, tests, etc)
  • 8. Act as a link with local events/workshops that could be helpful for the Peccioli RIF, both to promote the facilities and services provided and to foster new collaboration in the robotic field (at industrial and research level
