Pic4Ser Activities

  • Coordinate and harmonize within a common interdepartmental Centre, the activities already carried out within the different departments of Politecnico di Torino (DETDAUINDIMEASDIATI and DAD) on the theme of service robotics
  • Develop enabling technologies for service robotics in the different research areas, with attention to the integration, modularity, resilience and reconfigurability
  • Develop innovative methods for defining architectures (mechanics, electronics, ICT, etc…) for service robotics
  • Develop innovative mobile platform using hybrid locomotion systems, soft modular robots and biomimetic devices able to integrate the enabling technologies and to test innovations
  • Invest on the issues (and related technologies) of service / connected / smart / collaborative robotics avoiding, where possible, overlapping with other specific labs and companies already positioned in the national and international scenario
  • Deepen and expand the issues related to interaction and collaborative design (HRI / HMI)
  • Develop approaches and cross-cutting technologies independent from a specific platform and/or application
  • Face and develop “social” and “health & lifestyle” aspects (applications and relapse) where it is not strictly necessary a “humanoid” interaction, but is much important the effectiveness of the service offered and the technologies and / or data platforms used (included in this sector the issues of interconnection, cloud, data sharing, big data, augmented reality, etc…)
  • Make central the role of design and human-machine interaction for the effectiveness and safety of the service offered (to create something practical, safe and functional, not just purely cosmetic and / or appealing)
  • Deepen the economic, social and ethical aspects (on companies, on the labor market, on the society in general) related with the introduction of service robotics and the development of public / private services based on this emerging technology
  • Strengthen competencies and international industrial and scientific hooks in those areas, to use the activities of the Centre as a “flying wheel” for participation in regional, national and EU projects
