AdaMeKoR: An easy-to-use robot arm for people in need of care

In the AdaMeKoR project, two DFKI research departments – Robotics Innovation Center and Cyber-Physical Systems – and their partners are working on adaptive robotic solutions for the area of care. Robotics can not only contribute to supporting overworked nursing staff in many tasks, but also give more autonomy to patients with a limited ability to move. For this reason, the Cyber-Physical Systems research department is developing control mechanisms for the robot arm Jaco by the Canadian company Kinova, which can already be used in the nursing sector in Germany. In the video, DFKI researcher Felix Goldau shows what data is being collected to develop a simpler controller for the arm that can help, for example, with drinking.
