Research Projects

EU Projects:

REFILLS: Robotics Enabling Fully-Integrated Logistics Lines for Supermarkets (H2020, 731590, 2017-2020)

SHERPA: Smart collaboration between Humans and ground-aERial robots for imProving rescuing activities in Alpine environments. The goal of SHERPA is to develop a mixed ground and aerial robotic platform to support search and rescue activities in a real-world hostile environment, like the alpine scenario that is specifically targeted in the project.

SAPHARI: Safe and Autonomous Physical Human-Aware Robot Interaction. SAPHARI will bring to fruition co-workers in real world applications using the new technologies of soft robotics that combine cognitive reaction and safe physical human-robot interaction. We will expand and improve the functionalities of robotic systems and further develop relevant features, such as autonomy, safety, robustness, efficiency, and ease of use.

AIRobots:Innovative aerial service robots for remote inspections by contact. The goal of the AIRobots project is to develop a new generation of aerial service robots capable to support human beings in all those activities which require the ability to interact actively and safely with environments not constrained on ground but, indeed, freely in air.

DEXMART: DEXterous and autonomous dual-arm/hand robotic manipulation with sMART sensory-motor skills: A bridge from natural to artificial cognition. DEXMART has the ambition to fill the gap between the use of robots in industrial environments and the use of future robots in everyday human and unstructured environments, contributing to reinforce European competitiveness in all those domains of personal and service robotics where dexterous and autonomous dual-hand manipulation capabilities are required.

Austrian Science Fund (FWF) Project at TU Vienna:

 Game-Theoretic Agent Programming: high-level programming formalisms and techniques for multiple agents in uncertain and partially observable environments.
