🤖 Robot IST TIAGo - SocRob@Home - Participants in the euROBIN Competition - European Robotics Week 2024




From November 25 to 28, 2024, the 1st euROBIN Coopetition will take place in Nancy, France, following Humanoids 2024, the IEEE-RAS 2024 International Conference on Humanoid Robots.

euROBIN coopetitions are designed not only to test individual team capabilities but also to foster collaborative innovation by rewarding teams for both their own achievements and the successful integration of their developed modules by others. By promoting modularity, reusability, and transferability in robotic systems, euROBIN aims to advance the frontier of robotics and artificial intelligence, driving progress in diverse application domains such as robotic manufacturing, personal robotics, and outdoor robotics for sustainable communities. Hereby, with these profiles we would like to welcome you to the pioneering world of the euROBIN project, where the brightest robotic teams from across Europe converge to participate in this groundbreaking event.






The IST TIAGo is a customized version of the TIAGo Steel robot developed by PAL Robotics, improved for the domestic environment. The IST TIAGo is a mobile manipulator robot with a differential- drive base, a lifting torso, a 2-DoF pan-tilt head, and a 7-DoF arm with a 3 kg maximum payload.



In indoor domestic scenarios, the two Hokuyo laser range- finders mounted in the base and a downwards-facing RGB- D camera in the head, provide adequate localization and navigation with 3D obstacle avoidance. A second Orbbec Astra S RGB-D camera mounted in the head enables object detection, 6D pose estimation, and object tracking. A ReSpeaker microphone array with noise canceling and an 8W speaker enables human-robot interaction via speech. More recently, a 3D Ouster OS1 LiDAR was installed to be used in 2.5D navigation.
