Flexible industrial mobile manipulation: a software perspective

With ongoing research in robotics, some specific architectural approaches of robotic systems earn more and more interest by all kinds of industries. Mobile manipulators--robots consisting of a mobile base and a serial manipulator--provide the ability …

Security considerations in modular mobile manipulation

Mobile manipulation will play an essential role in future production's intralogistics. In addition, it can be assumed that location-independence of manipulation will greatly contribute to flexible production and higher efficiency in robot use. …


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.
