Lecorob enters Phase 3

Assessor_meeting_London_2015During the latest SILVER assessment panel held on August 20th in London, the Phase 3 tenders were evaluated. The panel decided to award a contract to Robot Care Systems (formerly Lerovis) with LEA (formerly Lecorob). From the three Phase 2 prototypes – Helping Hand, Lecorob and Iron Arm – only the last two met the competition’s minimum criteria and were allowed to enter the third phase of the SILVER Pre-Commercial Procurement process. Out of the two, only LEA met the minimum threshold in the Phase 3 competition and was invited to sign a contract for the real-life testing of their solution in the SILVER municipalities. The aim of these tests is to check how the prototypes developed in Phase 2 actually perform in real-world conditions.
