The ARTEMIS rover has been built up within eight months for the DLR SpaceBot competition 2013. In that competition the rover had to autonomously collect several objects in an unknown environment. Both staff and students participated in the development and formed the team Artemis.

Due to the requirements of the competition the rover is equipped with powerful sensors and a manipulator arm. It is highly mobile by using a triple bogie suspension and rubber tweels.


ARTEMIS: First test run with a penetrometer

The rover Artemis, developed at the DFKI Robotics Innovation Center, has been equipped with a penetrometer that measures the soil's penetration resistance to obtain precise information about soil strength. Such measurements allow for conclusions about the current soil condition, applicable in both agricultural settings and space exploration. The video showcases an initial test run with the device mounted on the robot. During this test, the robot was remotely controlled, and the maximum penetration depth was limited to 15 mm.

HySociaTea: Selected features from the final project demonstration

This video shows selected technologies of the HySociaTea scenario: the any-time resource planner, the object recognition using the information from the eye tracker, speech interaction with the robots and the virtual character, autonomous task allocation of the robots and autonomous robot-robot interaction.

HySociaTea: Autonomous robot-robot collaboration of Compi and AILA

This video shows the autonomous robot-robot collaboration in HySociaTea using the TECS framework. The Compi robot takes item to be delivered and reports that a delivery is required. AILA recognizes that she can handle the task and takes over. The handover is realized using a communication protocol.
