Proxima Robotics current activities are focused on developing autonomous navigation systems for mobile robots, both for internal and other company’s robotics solutions. Here we report some examples:
Jobot (www.jobot.it) is a low budget AGV, produced by Eutronica s.r.l. (www.eutronica.com) and designed to carry small loads in intralogistics applications. It does not require heavy changes in the working environment and it navigates through predefined routes between points of interests. In this project, Proxima Robotics s.r.l. took in charge the development of the on-board software, including but not limited to: mapping, localization, navigation, robot motion, recharge docking system, collision avoidance and mission management.
MecGeos (monitortheplanet.com/mecgeos) is a new robot designed for automatizing tasks in the geomatics field. The robotic system carries the surveying instruments, such as laser scanners and total station, across uneven terrain and stabilize the support platform, to obtain a successful environment scan. In this project, Proxima Robotics s.r.l. participated to the design of the mechanical part and took in charge the design of the electronic and control parts (robot base motion, support platform auto-alignment) and HMI development.
Service robot navigation in wide indoor environment.
