Two robotics solutions are being researched in the "JuBot" project: humanoid assistance robots that perform household tasks and assess situations independently, and exoskeletons with non-invasive interfaces to the human body.
The two human-centred robotics solutions developed in the project are intended to support older people in coping with everyday life with the help of artificial intelligence. On the one hand, KIT is developing a new generation of ARMAR robots. These humanoid assistance robots can perform household tasks, interact with natural language, independently assess situations, learn from humans, recognise their intentions and adapt to their individual needs. They are being tested in a care facility. On the other hand, research is being conducted on the development of dressable robots in the form of exoskeletons with novel, non-invasive interfaces to the human body. These are intended to promote personal mobility, enable personalised training and strengthen movement skills.
