Our goal is to develop an “AAA” – adaptive, accessibly assistance robot to support people with special needs as well as elderly people during their daily life; whether they are at home or in complex public environments.
We are constantly working on new features to build up a multi-purpose robot that is able to adapt to the user’s needs and preferences. For getting there, we follow two development paths. First, we are implementing many “function bits” or features for our robot ﹣ similar to building blocks for later task process chains. Second, we are developing a match-making system to construct the named process chains adaptively, based on the user’s needs. The result shall become our final A3Bot system.
We are working with the Segway Robotics Loomo platform. A versatile, affordable, Android-based robot on wheels, which is a self-balancing vehicle at the same time.
