Robotics Cluster

A platform for the development of service robot solutions

SeRoNet is developing an open IT platform that brings together users, systems integrators and hardware and software firms that operate in the service robotics sector. The platform allows users to join together to develop software and to choose from a large selection of hardware and software products from a wide range of different firms. The goal is to considerably reduce the time and effort involved in the development of professional service robotics software. Whilst today the development of this kind of software is only profitable if it is used for at least 20 robots, SeRoNet wants to bring this figure down to 1.
