ServRobot - reconfigurable and all terrain Service Robot with autonomous behaviors

This project aims to research and develop new technologies that allow the creation of a mobile robot capable of moving autonomously with capabilities of mechanical reconfiguration and optimization of energy consumption, thus being able to adapt to different types of use and different kinds of scenarios, able to collect sensory information from a specific remote site and act autonomously based on that information. The research and development advocated in this project will enable the development of a new product for security and surveillance purposes, allowing the integration of telemonitoring systems from a mobile device capable of autonomous decision, changing the current paradigm of surveillance, which relies on cameras and security officer. The development project of ServRobot is of high strategic value for Holos as it aims to consolidate the activities of industrial research and experimental development undertaken by the company in the field of service robots.
