European Clearing House for Open Robotics Developm.. (ECHORD)
European Clearing House for Open Robotics Development
Start date: Jan 1, 2009,
End date: Dec 31, 2013
Strengthening the knowledge transfer between scientific research and industry in robotics and stimulating their cooperation
In Europe the robotics industry is strong, but still fragmented and dispersed. The objective of ECHORD is to provide new opportunities for coordinated and target-oriented scientific research as well as knowledge transfer in robotics and to create a productive collaboration environment for research institutions and robot manufacturers across Europe. This cooperation will reduce the fragmentation of our robotics industry. European robotics industry will be helped to achieve a significant cutting-edge advantage in the increasingly competitive world market. ECHORD aims at producing new knowledge through advancing the state of the art in human-robot interfacing and safety, robot hands and complex manipulation, mobile manipulators and cooperation, and networked robots and systems.
