May 2011: The European Future Technologies Conference and Exhibition (Fet11) was held between the 4th and 6th May 2011 in Budapest, Hungary. The team had the opportunity to demonstrate Acroban at their stand. The audience was typically members of the cutting edge technology field and had a good representation of both research and research departments of industry. (Haylee Fogg, Adrien Baranes and Olivier Ly)

April 2011: Laval Virtual in Laval, France was a virtual reality exhibition held in France between the 6th and 10th April. The team brought FLOWERS Field and Acroban along to the exhibition and were greeted with great enthusiasm. Members of the public had access to the final two days of this exhibition which provided very different feedback from the previous days and exhibition in Laval. Most of the previous guests were members of various technology and robotic fields and reacted quite differently from those of the public. Both Acroban and FLOWERS Field were well received by all. (Jérôme Béchu, Pierre Rouanet, Jérémy Laviole and Haylee Fogg)

March 2011: Innorobo (International Summit of Personal Robotics) in Lyon, France aimed at gathering both industry and research teams who develop in the area of service robotics in order to show to the general public as well as to build up industrial partnerships during an exhibition which was held between the 23rd and 25th March. The team had the opportunity to present FLOWERS Field and Acroban. Acroban attracted a lot of interest from both the general and specialist public, as well as from various media. This was also the first time that the updated version of FLOWERS Field had been presented, and the added functionality of interactivity with the audience was a big hit; this included being able to select various flower behaviours through an iPad interface and also interact with the flowers through a special behaviour where flowers followed the path of the interactor’s hand through a Kinect.
