Project factsheets - Robotics

Article
The European Commission funds over 100 collaborative projects on advanced research into robots which aim to understand the world around them through sensing, perception, understanding, reasoning and action.

The projects cover subjects ranging from autonomy, manipulation / grasping, mobility and navigation in all terrains, to human-robot interaction and cooperative robots. Many if not all of the projects tackle seemingly simple tasks which are very difficult for machines: how to pick up a ball, avoid bumping into a wall, recognize a danger in the home and so on.
