February 9, 2015 | Results of France’s first national collaborative robotics competition

France’s first-ever national interactive robotics competition, held on February 5, was by all accounts a success. The event was organized by the DGE (the French government’s Directorate General for Enterprise) and the CEA and was held at the CEA’s Nano-INNOV center. Two CEA LIST start-ups, Haption and RB3D, took home prizes.
