COMI / personal robot

The personal robot “COMI” supports needy people in a physical and psychical way so they can handle everyday problems better on their own. So especially for old people it is possible to live longer secure in their own ambiance. It can work in an autonomic and a manual mode. Its omnidirectional wheels allowing maneuver in narrow environments. For orientation IR-sensors and webcams are used. With its table COMI can lift a person and so support the person to get up. The covering material is expanded polypropylene (shock-absorbing and comfortable in touch). The touch-screen provides easy access to multimedia content.
