General Information

Autonomous Collaborative Robots to Swing and Work in Everyday Environment




The project aims to develop a radically new robot locomotion technology that can effectively be used in home and/or in office environments for manipulating small objects autonomously or in close cooperation with humans. This new type of mobile robot will be designed to move fast and in any 3D direction in an interior environment.
