Robots that care, with increased cognitive abilities. Robots able to perceive their environment, understand it, respond and behave appropriately and navigate autonomously. Robots that can assist patients and support the work of nurses and doctors in hospitals. This is what Konica Minolta Laboratory Europe aims to do within the course of a partnership with the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), and the hospital Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, in San Giovanni Rotondo (Foggia).
