Welfare Robotics


SDU Robotics addresses problems in navigation and manipulation connected to human robot interactions in the context of Welfare Robotics.

We aim at developing cost-efficient robot solutions, in particular for hospitals and elderly-care institutions that support care personnel in their daily tasks.

As a main developing platform we utilise the Care-o-Bot (see top image) as part of the project Patient@home. The Care-o-Bot allows us to evaluate use cases of a wide range of complexity. To that end, we cooperate closely with Kerstin Fischer and Poramate Manoonpong.
