An European collaboration
Welcome to the CrowdBot project
CrowdBot is a collaborative project between 7 organizations from 4 European countries funded by the European Comission (EU H2020). This project articulates Ethical question with Technical problems in the goal of enabling robots, autonomous one or semi-autonomous one to navigate in crowded environments. This website present CrowdBot Project and the ongoing experiments and results.
The objectives of CrowdBot Project are of both a scientific/technical nature and of an ethical/regulatory nature. The first objective is a policy for robots moving in crowds with specific dynamics. The second is robots' abilities to sense and to predict the dynamics of a crowd of pedestrians surrounding the robot. And an important global objective for CROWDBOT is to integrate, evaluate and validate these step changes in robot abilities.Read More
Four robots are involved in the CrowdBot Project. These robots are different and therefore complementary. Pepper is an autonomous expressive humanoid still commercialized. The semi-autonomous wheelchair is a medical device shared controlled. CuyBot is a highly customizable robotic platform. And Qolo is an innovative mobility solution shared controlled with an humans.Read More
Seven partners from England, France, Germany and Switzerland collaborate to CrowdBot Projet. The consortium is composed of 1 large companies (SoftBank Robotics), 1 SME (Locomotec), 1 research organization (INRIA) and 4 academics (EPFL, ETHZ, RWTH and UCL). The CrowdBot partners have individual and complementary roles to meet the project's objectives.Read More
