Robots

There's three different robots at the Laurea Leppävaara campus. The most known and used of them is Pepper. All of the robots are introduced shortly underneath.

Pepper

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.
Features:

  • 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

 

Omron

The Omron LD Mobile Robot is a self-navigating Autonomous Mobile Robot (AMR). It's designed for dynamically moving material in challenging environments that may include confined passageways as well as dynamic and peopled locations. It's a logistic robot that can carry about 80kgs of weight.
During the pandemic, the students of Laurea used it for returning the books to the library, which avoided human contact. The robot can be used in hospitals, for example, for delivering instruments to different locations inside the hospital.


Star-wars

Can be considered as a security robot. It recognizes people, and if it doesn’t, it asks for a password. If the person is unable to tell the password, the alarm of the robot goes off, alerting other people of a intruder.

Picture Wall

Picture wall has a lot of professional level photographing equipment. It can be utilized by creating content, like pictures and videos, for different kind of projects. Workspace’s users can, for example, take high-quality pictures and videos by adjusting exposure’s tone and brightness and utilizing neutral canvas as a background.
Picture wall implements its users an opportunity to plan, create and publish high-quality content for school and customer projects. Even if picture wall user don't have earlier experience of photographing equipment, the Digital Living Lab’s picture wall is a great way to practice and improve own skills.

VR

VR can be used as a part of a project. It's a helpful tool, for example, for creating a presentation of a floorplan.

Virtual Reality means simulating bits of our world using high-performance computers and sensory equipment, like headsets and gloves. Apart from games and entertainment, it's long been used for training airline pilots or surgeons.
Businesses can use VR to demonstrate and promote their products to potential customers. In fact, many industries have used VR to transport people to places they might otherwise have to travel to or simply imagine like Gucci Town or Nikeland.

3D printer

The 3D printer that is in Laurea Leppävaara campus is the FlashForge Inventor 3D printer. It can be used for different projects and it's a great tool for printing small prototypes or spare parts.

3D printing is about transforming three-dimensional models into physical objects that you can touch and hold. It's created by "adding" layers upon layers of material until the object is ready.

The metod that Laureas 3D printer Inventor uses is called fused filament fabrication. It works by melting plastic material called filament onto a print surface in high temperature. In 3D printing the filament layers down multiple times until the model is ready. The filament starts to cool down immediately after it's extruded from the nozzle, so the object won't be hot when it's finished and ready to be taken out from the printer.

5

Drones

There's three different drones from the same producer DJI at the Laurea Leppävaara campus. All of them are explained separately underneath.
