Mobile and autonomous sensor systems - MAsens
SINTEF pushes the boundaries of autonomous drones. Mobile and autonomous sensor systems constitute a priority area at SINTEF. We offer a large range of relevant technologies and competence within this field for mobile and autonomous systems in the air, on ground and under water.
Autonomous mobile systems are capable of reasoning about and solving unstructured problems without the direct intervention of humans, and central to future exploitation of the ocean space.
SEAMLESS - Simultaneous navigation and manipulation in complex dynamic scenes
Dynamic motion planning for safe human-robot collaboration.
Auto3D: Random bin picking
As manual labor is getting increasingly expensive, the use of robots for automatic handling of parts is becoming crucial for the piece manufacturing industry in high-cost countries. One challenge that remains to be solved is to automatically pick and place objects that are placed completely unorganized in a container. This problem is commonly referred to as random bin picking.
New 3D camera to give robots better view
The TACO EU Project will develop a new type of laser based time-of-flight 3D camera, that will give robots a more “human view of the world”.
3D vision and object recognition for off-shore robot guidance
The Norwegian oil company StatoilHydro has developed a new concept for an unmanned oil & gas platform. The platform should be equipped with intelligent and reliable robotic and instrumentation systems that enable a series of inspection and maintenance tasks to be carried out either automatically or remotely controlled from operators located onshore.
NEXTGENROB - Next Generation Robotics for Norwegian Industry
NEXTGENROB is a 5-year research program aiming to develop new competence and knowledge in next-generation robotics for Norwegian industry. The project is led by SINTEF ICT and is funded with support from the Research Council of Norway and from the industrial partners Statoil, Hydro, Tronrud Engineering, Glen Dimplex Nordic, SB Seating and RobotNorge.
