The cluster of excellence CoTeSys participated in the InnoRobo Innovation Robotic Summit in Lyon/France, an international trade show on service robotics, March 14-16, 2012.

The joint booth of CoTeSys and the Italian Institute of Technology, IIT in Genua/Italy as well as the Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna, Pisa/Italy with the Octopus project attracted the crowd at the InnoRobo. The robot ICub from IIT caught the attention of many young and old visitors with its attempts to grasp a red ball or toys. 

At the summit, robotic companies and research institutions presented their latest technologies, services and products. At the second InnoRobo more than 100 exhibitors from 12 countries showed the latest innovations and is therefore the biggest show in Europe. Among the exhibitors were two from Germany: the CoTeSys cluster and the company MetraLabs.
