Fields of competence
ROBOTNOR represents a unique synergy of academic and industrial expertise which allows us to counsel and comprehend a wide variety of tasks and projects. Our fields of competence are numerous and diverse.
Vision sensors are necessary for the robots to understand and interact with their surroundings. Depending on the task to be solved – object recognition, context understanding, navigation, quality control, safety monitoring – different sensors are necessary to enable safe robust analysis and performance.
ROBOTNOR researchers have experience in applying different sensor modalities for robotics, each with their individual strengths:
Selecting the right sensor may be the difference between a non-working and a robust solution.
