Capital injection of clever money into the Danish robot industry: High-growth robot company MiR receives growth capital from a strong team of private investors

Thanks for the offer, but no thanks, was the final answer to several Chinese, European and US investors, who in 2015 became aware of the obvious potential in up-and-coming Danish robot manufacturer Mobile Industrial Robots.
Only a year ago, MiR launched its innovative, flexible, mobile robot MiR100, and in step with MiR's steep growth where new countries were conquered each month, the company received a growing number of inquiries from potential investors. Public and private foundations also offered their services, and all of them were thoroughly considered. But none came out of the cold.

Do-it-yourself toolkit for soft robotics

To work directly together with humans, a robot needs to be flexible and soft. Conventional systems are insufficiently flexible for this purpose. Scientists at Fraunhofer IPA see promising solutions in so-called soft robotics. They have developed hardware modules for a safe, flexible robot system and have made them publicly available in the form of a toolkit. Robotics researchers and developers can use the components to quickly and easily implement their own robot systems while benefiting from the knowledge of a growing community of developers.
