Trailer for the research project AMMCOA

For the research project AMMCOA of the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, there is now a separate project trailer, which informs about the questions and objectives of this project. More detailed information can be found in our blog about this topic (only available in german language).

In its project section, Robot Makers GmbH primarily takes over the algorithms for the realization of innovative approaches for swarm robotics in agriculture and in the construction sector. Various scenarios are developed and then tested in practice. Another focus is on the possibilities of localization, which result from the newly developed technology. The subject area of precise and reliable localization is one of the main challenges in many applications of mobile automation.
