Developing a sense of touch in robotics with project NeuTouch

By |2020-07-27T10:49:10+00:00July 27th, 2020|Categories, Research|

Robots are advancing all the time, from walking and talking, to seeing and hearing, and having the ability to manipulate objects. Developing a sense of touch though is something that presents more of a challenge, but brings numerous benefits. Adding the sense of touch to the robot's gripper for example would remove uncertainties in dealing [...]

Artificial Intelligence in TIAGo for healthcare and agile production as part of EU project OpenDR

By |2020-07-21T07:44:38+00:00July 20th, 2020|Customer stories, Research|

Advances in Artificial Intelligence in the field of robotics have led to major developments, such as self-driving cars and algorithms that can both understand and respond to questions. Yet, open frameworks in deep learning can be challenging to deploy in robotics since they have a steep learning curve and radically different methodology. The OpenDR project [...]

Developing Memory of Motion in robots with arms and legs in project Memmo
