La Marató de TV3, which took place on 16 December 2018, dealt with cancer this year. During the 14 hours of the live program, more than 10 million euros was raised, coming from both the public and from businesses.
YASYT Robotics played an active part in this year’s Marató with Pepper, who participated in the virtual spaces with presentations on technological innovations for both diagnosis and treatment. In order to involve Pepper in the program, we developed an application to support all the appearances, a browser program to overcome obstacles associated with light, and we changed the language to Catalan.
Our research director, Raquel Ros, and our operations director, Nuria Infiesta, also presented our project in a live interview. You can see the complete interview here.he aim of YASYT Robotics is to provide support to all those fighting against cancer. We would like to say a big thank you to all those who made the Marató possible: the directors, producers, TV3 staff, volunteers and YASYT Robotics team for making this collaboration a reality.
