Collaborative Robots

Both flying and walking robots offer advantages when planning and executing rescue missions, however what NCCR Robotics is also researching is how to utilise both types of platform together, to ensure that the strengths of both systems are used, and the weakness of the systems are covered. For example, in a disaster zone after an earthquake, flying robots can be used to fly above the area and to direct ground robots to areas where they may be required to deliver first aid, use vision sensors to give rescue teams a clearer view of victims or use their stability to move pieces of rubble to free trapped people.

Within NCCR Robotics our researchers are working not only on ways to help robots to communicate with each other, but also developing a language to help humans to communicate with robot teams.
