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

SIAR [Jan 2016 – Sep 2018]
Sewer Inspection Autonomous Robot
The SIAR project is developing a fully autonomous ground robot able to autonomously navigate and inspect the sewage system with a minimal human intervention, and with the possibility of manually controlling the vehicle or the sensor payload when required.
The SIAR consortium is leaded by IDMind and includes also two universities
IDMind is leading the construction of the locomotion platform.
The project is being developed in the scope of the ECHORD++ (FP7 funding)

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.
