Report from MWC 2013

This last Thursday 28 of February a team of PAL Robotics employees visited the MWC2013 to participate into the Intel Cloud Services Hackathon with the last version of our service robot REEM H3.

The team was composed by Jonathan Gonzalez, Hilario Tome, Sergio Ramos, Eric Marcos and Sammy Pfeiffer. Together they managed to integrate some parts of the Intel Cloud API into the webserver used by the screen of REEM. They successfully integrated some of the robot’s functionalities via web.

Besides this work, REEM rolled around the event attracting people’s attention and she even made a robot friend at the GSMA stand!

In words of the team:
“We’ve seen a big effort in integrating NFC in our everyday life and we found it quite useful! There were a lot of new cool smartphones and tools to create amazing apps for them. The new location of the event is even bigger and has been taken care of to look incredible. It was a delightful experience!”

After struggling with some little problems and understanding what the team was going to do, they divided the work and got to implement some features about login and location management into the robot.

The REEM team won! Thank you a lot intel for your friendliness and for organizing such a enjoyable event! Same goes for the WIPJAM team, specially for Carlo Longino as he helped us get into the event.

PAL Robotics would love to be there next year with REEM and meet again with all the cool people that our team and the robot met.
