Project description

SANDRo (Semi Autonomous Night and Day Robot) is an innovative robot that provides assistive services to people with difficulties in Activities of Daily Living (ADL). In this project, the ambition is to deploy the proposed solution in large scale real-life trials and demonstrate the required safety, robustness and stability. Instead of aiming for full autonomy, which usually depends on immature technologies, a semi-autonomous system will be deployed, when assistance is required, the operator controls the robot via a remote command center (Cockpit) using haptic control. The project aims to conduct trials in several care centers and test facilities across Europe. SANDRo is based on an integration of breakthrough software with existing technologies, to be launched into a new market. PAL Robotics’ TIAGo will take part in the project, to be deployed as the service robot platform.
