Projects and partners of the FZI Living Lab Service Robotics

  • LAURON: LAURON is a biologically inspired, six-legged walking robot.
  • KAIRO: KAIRO is a modular serpentine inspection robot.
  • HoLLiE: The service robot HoLLiE is a flexible mobile support for everyday life.
  • iBOSS: The goal of the project iBOSS is the standardisation and modularisation of satellites.
  • ISABEL: ISABEL stands for “innovative service robot with autonomous and intuitive operation for efficient handling and logistics” (in German “Innovativer Serviceroboter mit Autonomie und intuitiver Bedienung für effiziente Handhabung und Logistik”).
  • FTS Fahrerlose Transportsysteme (automated guided vehicle systems): The FZI does not only work on intelligent navigation solutions for automated guided vehicles but also on the corresponding control of the infrastructure and fleet management. Thus, the FZI was able to broaden the range of application of its automated guided vehicles via an OPC-based infrastructure control with the help of an industrial partner. The partner’s innovative automated guided vehicles are currently in use in a hospital in Basel, Switzerland.
  • InBOT: The acronym InBOT stands for “Interactive Behaviour Operated Trolley” and was developed in order to research and to promote the use of technologies in robotics in humans’ everyday environment.
  • viEMA: In this BMWi project, five research partners have built a learning robot cell that is able to help out at manual workplaces at high quantities.
  • Human Brain Project: The goal of the flagship project European Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) is to gain a new understanding of the brain, to research new treatment options for brain diseases, and to develop new biologically inspired computer technologies by means of the integration between neuro-scientific data and methods from different disciplines.
