Mobile Assistive Furniture Hardware

Render Furniture as Mobile Agents

Biorobotics Laboratory is featuring two Assistive Furniture Robotics platforms:  Roombots and Omnibots. 

Roombots modules are designed to self-assemble into changing, active every-day environment elements, e.g. pieces of furniture. As they have multi-purpose features they can be also used to assemble legged robots, like quadruped robots (link simulation results).

Omnibots are our current simplified hardware solution of such a mobile furniture suite consisting of customized omni-directional robots and adaptive connection mechanism.

Besides, the Yamor project is an earlier project, featuring one-degree of freedom self-sufficient modules with Bluetooth scatternet communication. They are assembled using a pin-and-hole plug system. The Locomorph project is a EU-project that investigates locomotion and movements in animals and robots, focusing on the concepts of morphology and morphosis.
