This page introduces you to the equipment available in the Digital Living Lab at Laurea Leppävaara campus, in classroom 009.

There are different categories of equipment, each with their own purposes and features.


1. Robots

We have three different robots at the Laurea Leppävaara campus. The most well-known and commonly used among them is Pepper. All of the robots are briefly introduced below.


Pepper is the world’s first social humanoid robot that's able to recognize faces and basic human emotions. Pepper was optimized for human interaction and is able to engage with people through conversation and its touch screen.

  • 20 degrees of freedom for natural and expressive movements

  • Speech recognition and dialogue, available in 15 languages

  • Perception modules to recognize and interact with the person talking to Pepper

  • Touch sensors, LEDs and microphones for multimodal interactions

  • Infrared sensors, bumpers, an inertial unit, 2D and 3D cameras, and sonars for omnidirectional and autonomous navigation

  • Open and fully programmable platform


2. Photography, 3D Printing and VR technology

Laurea also has a selection of equipment broadens the spectrum of possible projects for the students. This selection can also help students familiarize themselves with modern technology that most people don't have at home. More information about specifics below.

Picture wall

The picture wall is equipped with professional-level photography equipment, which can be utilized for content creation, including pictures and videos, for various types of projects. Workspace users can, for example, capture high-quality images and videos by adjusting exposure, tone, and brightness, and by utilizing a neutral canvas as a background.

The picture wall offers its users an opportunity to plan, create, and publish high-quality content for school and customer projects. Even if picture wall users don't have prior experience with photography equipment, the Digital Living Lab’s picture wall is an excellent way to practice and enhance their skills.
