The Autonomous Industrial Mobile Manipulator (AIMM) of the DLR is focused on fetch and carry operations in partially unstructured environments. In contrast to traditional industrial robots, by combining a manipulator with a mobile platform, the application possibilities of a robotic system can be considerably extended, especially in an industrial context. For instance, thanks to the extended working space of the robot, large components can be machined.
While more and more new types of robots are available for human-robot collaboration (HRC), sharp-edged robot tools and components continue to pose a major threat of possible injuries in the case of a human-machine collision. To solve this problem, we designed an airbag that enables HRC for a wide range of robot tools and objects without limiting the function of the overall robotic system.
The DLR Light Weight Robot III (LWR III) is a light-weight robot with seven degrees of freedom, which was in 2003 presented to the public for the first time.
The light-weight robot SARA demonstrates novel functionalities in force controlled robotics for a smooth human-robot collaboration. Industry 4.0 applications thereby become more efficient, cheaper and safer.
