Service robots are on the advance worldwide. An even bigger market potential is forecast for them than for industrial robots. They are expected to support people in many areas of their daily lives in a whole range of handling, transport and processing tasks or contribute towards their entertainment. MMI’s innovations in the area of service robotics combine innovations such as 3D simulation technology, space robotics, mobile robotics and processing machine simulation with new techniques and applications in the area of service robotics. At the focal point is the availability of efficient test beds as the basis for the development of innovative service robots, the development of new localization and navigation processes, as well as the implementation of intelligent robot systems through the implementation of 3D simulation technology in the robot itself i.e. embodied simulation.
