Very special assignment at the Women's Ski World Cup awards ceremony in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

The robot GARMI, actually developed to care for elderly people, had a very special assignment this weekend: The autonomous service humanoid presented trophies to the winners at the Women's Ski World Cup awards ceremony in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. GARMI was developed at the Geriatronics site of the TUM Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. MIRMI Founding Director Prof. Sami Haddadin said: “GARMI's participation in the world-famous Kandahar Alpine ski race was a wonderful opportunity to show to an international audience how robotics technology developed at the TUM Geriatronics Research Center in Garmisch-Partenkirchen can contribute to people's safety in times of Corona. It was an exciting use case and event where the team explored and adapted our technology’s possibilities to a challenging outdoor environment in just a matter of weeks.“
