FlexIFF Logo

The FlexIFF project aims to bring the flexibility of modern robots and assistive systems to connected factories of the future. We focus on intralogistics tasks where mixed teams of humans and robots work to gether to achieve the best results. Fleets of mobile manipulators and mobile robots support operators on the shopfloor in transporting material and products within the factory.
