Assistive robot is one of the most promise robotic application in near future. Since 2000, Robotics Lab developes a robot for disable and elderly people assistant (MATS), general interactive intelligent assistant (PRA), and general humanoid assistant (Rh-
Research in the field of climbing robots started in 1995. Since this date several robots had been developed: Roma 1 for inspection steel-based structures, Roma 2 for travel along concrete, wood, etc., and Mats robot allows moving in domestic environments.
Humanoid robots program of the RoboticsLab started on 2001 by developing the 7 DOF bipedal robot Leroy. Since 2002 Rh-0 project, and later Rh-1 one, had the objective of development a 21 DOF full size robot.
In the last fwe days, sevaral colaborations have been established in Industrial Automation field as automatization of construcction processes and several task for automotion industries.
The objective of this research line is to develop advanced mobile manipulators able to operate in human environments. Manfred integrates perception, control, local and global planning in order to cope with a wide spectrum of typical tasks required for a s
