The University of Agder research activity showcased on Italian TV

On Friday 22.11.2019, a television crew from the Italian channel La7 visited the Dept. of Engineering Sciences, University of Agder (UiA), Grimstad. The crew interviewed me and other colleagues. The crew also also visited the university facilities and laboratories, such as the Mechatronics Innovation Lab (MIL) and the I4Helse arena. The crew was very interested in assistive technology for elderly people.
