SLAM in Home Environments with NDT Maps

For obvious reasons, we also call these maps "Smartie-maps". Thanks to our adaptive resolution mapping, filigrane structures like the rocking chair shown in the forground of the above image can be modelled.

Capacitive Touch Sensors for manual motion control

The red areas show the areas of capacitive touch sensors mounted to the inside of the plastic cover of the Scitos G3 Robot. These are used for assisted local motion control since pushing the robot passively is not possible.

Detecting people by using a deformable part model

Our robots use a deformable part model to detect people in different poses given occlusion. Parts shown in blue, final detections shown in red.
