Mobile Robotics Technology for Health Care Services Research Network

Short description

Within the European MobiNet project, guest researchers are exchanged between the project partners in order to build groups working on concepts for the application of mobile robots in healthcare applications. Besides the technical work, the professional training of young researchers is the focus of the project. The exchange of researchers supports the mutual exchange of knowledge and skills between the researchers as well as between the various involved disciplines.

Focus of FTB

  • Market survey
  • User requirements analysis
  • Development of a speech-input device to control the MANUS manipulator
