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.

Mobile robot for endurance testing of dishwashers

Open the door, insert dirt, add the detergent and press the start button: dishwashers have to be put through hundreds of laborious test cycles before they can reliably carry out their day-to-day work. To relieve the pressure on humans during performance of the tests, Fraunhofer IPA was commissioned by Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte (BSH) to develop a new mobile robot system.
