Service Robots Help Us

Service robots are machines designed to help us with chores and other tasks. Automated floor vacuuming systems and unmanned airborne vehicles (drones) are common examples. Hospitals use robots to deliver drugs and to aid in surgery. Availability, lack of fatigue, wide sensory input, precision, strength, and other factors make robots ideal human service helpers. Here are some other areas with potential for developing service robots:

  • Food and beverage service
  • General cleaning tasks (kitchen, laundry, windows)
  • Package delivery
  • Lawn maintenance (grass cutting, debris collection, sprinklers)
  • Agricultural tasks (watering, feeding, weeding, harvesting)
  • Security and surveillance
  • Finding and fetching objects
  • Food preparation and cooking
  • Exoskeletons
  • Inventory and organization
  • Dangerous material handling
  • Animal care (for both pets and livestock)
  • Medical care and first aid
  • Game playing opponents
  • Mechanical maintenance (supply levels, filters and more)

Service Robots – Flexible Helpers in Professional Use
Service robotics in Europe is on the rise. The market entrance of Google, the establishment of the “Robo-Stox” index in 2013, special reports in magazines such as “The Economist” or “Der Spiegel” show it: service robotics is on the threshold of entering a new maturity level. Service robotics conquers new, commercial fields of application and has evolved from prototypes to commercially viable products. Thus, more and more professional service robots enter the market. Our film shows just how versatile service robots are and how present they already are in our everyday lifes!
