Our Role

In the PILLAR-Robots project, PAL Robotics is using TIAGo and TIAGo++ robots to demonstrate new robotic capabilities in different sectors. These robots are part of experiments that test how robots can learn and make decisions independently in practical situations. This work helps push forward the technology in making robots more autonomous and capable in real-world applications.

Key responsibilities

  • Using TIAGo and TIAGo++ robots in agri-food, edutainment, and industrial/retail environments.
  • Developing algorithms for the acquisition of purpose by robots.
  • Implementing strategies for biasing perceptual, motivational, and decision systems towards purposes.
  • Contributing to the development of purpose-related decision processes for increased autonomy and domain independence in robots.
