TIAGo OMNI ++ is the newest addition to the TIAGo mobile manipulation family, with omnidirectional drive with 3 DoF mecanum wheels. These bring the robot 360 degrees of movement and more flexibility than ever. TIAGo OMNI ++ is a bi-manual platform that comes with interchangeable end effectors, 360 LiDAR and a screen. The aim was to create a platform that is easily configurable and able to address any robotic research needs.
The screen on the torso is designed to aid Human-robot (HRI) research even further. The robot has two 7 DoF mobile manipulator arms for manipulation tasks, and a number of end effector options, including a humanoid hand or various types of grippers – these are, for now, PAL Robotics 5-fingered Hand, PAL Robotics Parallel Gripper, Robotiq Grippers 2F-140 and 2F-85, and Robotiq EPick Vacuum Gripper. Read more about these grippers here. Researchers can even integrate their end effectors of choice. TIAGo OMNI++ is also compatible with a range of accessories to enhance the robot capabilities further and enable you to improve your work on mobile manipulation.
