Tibi and Dabo robots

Tibi and Dabo are two mobile urban service robots aimed to perform navigation and human robot interaction tasks.Navigation is based on the differential Segway RMP200 platform, able to work in balancing mode, which is useful to overcome low slope ramps. Two 2D horizontal laser range sensors allow obstacle detection and localization.Human robot interaction is achieved with two 2 degrees of freedom (dof) arms, a 3 dof head with some face expressions, a stereo camera, text-to-speech software and a touch screen.They can be used to provide information, guiding and steward services to persons in urban spaces, either alone or both in collaboration.

Key features:
  • Loquendo text-to-speech software with english, spanish and catalan languages
Possible applications:
  • Teleoperation
  • 2D navigation in urban environments
  • Human robot interaction
  • Multirobot systems

TERRINet OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Coronavirus pandemic

Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,

we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.

However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.

The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.

Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts. 

For any additional questions, please, contact us at info@terrinet.eu

 Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future. 

Stay safe.  

TERRINet team
