Delta X workshops

During the course of the Delta X event visitors can participate in various workshops!

  • Clearbot workshop

In Estonia and also in the entire world, the need for people capable of developing and enforcing next-generation robots has dramatically increased. University of Tartu has developed the Clearbot: a robot programmed on ROS software, one of the most popular robotics frameworks! Pass through an obstacle course with Clearbot and learn more about robotics and ROS!

There is no need to register to the workshop beforehand and it is open throughout the event.

  • Soft robotics workshop

Living organisms are soft and robots are stiff – this classification can be made, but what happens if a robot turns soft – will it live? University of Tartu Institute of Technology’s soft robotics engineers will help find the answer.

The workshop takes place at 12.30pm-1.30pm and 1.35pm-2.45pm.

  • Workshop and visit to the Laboratory of Neuromarketing

We will be teaching about measuring emotions and human attention! Find out more about the activities of the Laboratory of Neuromarketing:
