AMIGO is the care robot of Tech United. AMIGO means Autonomous Mate for IntelliGent Operations. His height is approximately 1,5 m, he has two arms and moves with a platform on four wheels. To orientate in the domestic environment AMIGO uses three laser range finders and a Kinect-camera so he can see in 3D.
The research of the care robots is focussed on: Human-Robot Interaction and Cooperation, Navigatie and Mapping in a dynamic environment, Computer Vision and Object Recognition under normal light conditions, Object Manipulation, Adaptive Behaviors, Behavior Integration, Ambient Intelligence, Standardization and System Integration.
