ILIAD - Intra-Logistics with Integrated Automatic Deployment: safe and scalable fleets in shared spaces

Today, intralogistic services have to respond to changing market needs, unforeseeable trends and shorter product life cycles. Intralogistic systems have be flexible, reliable, self-optimising, quickly deployable and safe yet efficient in environments shared with humans. ILIAD will enable the transition to automation of intralogistic services with key stakeholders from the food distribution sector.

Underwater Robotics

Whether for desire for knowledge or necessity, the human being still ventures into the submerged world every day despite the hostile nature of the underwater environment, putting him at unavoidable risk and facing high costs

WiMUST - Widely scalable Mobile Underwater Sonar Technology

WiMUST (Widely scalable Mobile Underwater Sonar Technology) aims at conceiving and designing an intelligent team of cooperative autonomous marine robots, acting as intelligent sensing and communicating nodes of a reconfigurable moving acoustic network, that could drastically improve the efficacy of the methodologies used to perform geophysical and geotechnical acoustic surveys at sea.

SoMa - Soft-bodied intelligence for Manipulation

Soft Manipulation (SOMA) is the key for the development of simple, compliant, yet strong, robust, and easy-to-program manipulation systems. SOMA explores a new avenue of robotic manipulation, exploiting the physical constraints imposed by the environment to enable robust grasping and manipulation in dynamic, open, and highly variable contexts.

PHRIENDS - Phisical Human-Robot Interaction: Dependability and Safety

01.10.2006 — 30.09.2009. PHRIENDS is about developing key components of the next generation of robots, including industrial robots and assist devices (which include robots for the emerging market of non-industrial applications, e.g. for service, health-care, and entertainment), designed to share the environment and to physically interact with people.
