Seekur – Mobile manipulator

Mobile manipulators are comprised of one or more robotic arms attached to a mobile robot base. Relevant application areas include health-care robotics, manufacturing, robotic assistants, and security. Researchers from ROBOTNOR are working with mobile manipulators within areas such as path-planning, force-control, robot vision, and localization. One of the robotic platforms used actively in this research is Seekur mobile robot equipped with a manipulator arm from Schunk.
