Robots are entering more and more human homes today and are realizing often a real interaction with them. People perceive robots in a different way than other machines because they are performing tasks like humans who are programming them and the described Family of Educational Robots ROBCO is a good example tool for learning about robotics and interaction between robots and humans.
Having as a base the EMBLEMATIC Family of Educational Robots - ROBCO (developed in the early 80’s), we decided to redesign ROBCO 01 Robot, ROBCO Articulated Robot and ROBCO SCARA by developing a new hardware control system, new software, new graphical-user interface and new sensor system (giving feedback to the control system, about the exact position of the joints), as well as to equip ROBCO Phoenix mechanical system with new links produced from aluminum and replace the driving system with new DC gear-motors.
Allso, the Service Robotic Group developed also completely new Mobile Robots – ROBCO Soccer Mobile Robot, ROBCO Mobile Robot for Inspection and ROBCO Infrared Ball Chasing Robot.
Currently the group is working on a National Project ROBCO 18 - Intelligent Modular Mobile Robot for Elderly Care.
Our Family of Educational Robots ROBCO is suitable for a variety of applications and is a very good test bed for education of students, young specialist and researchers and it is important for all Technical Schools, Colleges, Laboratories and Universities (since Robotics is multidisciplinary scientific field which includes mechanics, electronic hardware, software, artificial intelligences, sensor and sensory systems etc).
