DE-ENIGMA [Fev 2016 – Aug 2019]
Playfully Empowering Autistic Children
The project aims to create and evaluate the effectiveness of robot-based technology as an integral part of the psychoeducational therapy for children with ASC.
The Consortium is formed by five academic research institutions, ASC experts and one SME.
IDMind is leading the overall system integration and validation.
DE-ENIGMA is a collaborative project under EU H2020

MOnarCH [Fev 2013 – Jan 2016]
Multi-Robot Cognitive Systems Operating in Hospitals
The MOnarCH project focus is on social robotics using networked heterogeneous robots and sensors to interact with children, staff, and visitors, engaging in edutainment activities in the pediatric infirmary at the Portuguese Oncology Institute at Lisbon (IPOL), Portugal.
The Consortium is formed by five academic research institutions, two SMEs and one hospital.
IDMind is leading the robot design and construction work package.
MOnarCH is a collaborative project under FP7-ICT-2011.2.1

SocialRobot [Nov 2011 – Oct 2015]
The SocialRobot project is funded within the FP7, Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways (IAPP). Through knowledge transfer and creation of strategic synergies between the partners the project aims the development of an integrated robotic and ICT-based care&wellness services system to support the elderly to remain active and independent in their preferred environment.
SMEs – IDMind (Portugal), Citard Services (Cyprus)
Academia – Universidade de Coimbra (Portugal, Coordinator), University of Cyprus (Cyprus)

SQUIRREL [Fev 2014 – Jan 2018]
Project SQUIRREL proposes to address the issue of clutter for mobile manipulation. The research is being driven by a cleaning scenario where a robot navigates in a cluttered environment and collects objects to be stowed away in designated places. The developed system will be evaluated over a toy problem scenario: cleaning up a child’s room. Where the toys scattered on the floor represent the clutter, and their variable sizes and arrangements exhibit all the rich complexity of the real world needed to validate the project approach. At the same time, using sturdy and lightweight objects and keeping manipulation at floor level alleviates hardware requirements and allows
learning from failures.
The Consortium is formed by six academic research institutions, three industrial partners and one kindergarden.
