Safe, Efficient and Integrated
Indoor Robotic Fleet
for Logistic Applications
in Healthcare and Commercial Spaces

RISE ENDORSE

Commercial indoor spaces such as hospitals, hotels, offices offer great potential for commercial exploitation of logistic robotics. Also, offer advantages for their deployment, since they are required by law to meet stringent building codes, and therefore the navigation space exhibits some structure. In addition, they offer reliable communications infrastructure, since this is required for normal business operation. Thus, commercial spaces are rightfully considered the next great field of logistic robotics deployment. Despite these advantages, today, few solutions exist, and these solutions do not trigger widespread acceptance by the market. This is because existing systems require costly infrastructure installation (arrays of peripheral sensors, mapping, etc.); they do not easily integrate to corporate IT solutions and as a result, they do not fully automate procedures and traceability; they are limited to a single type of service, i.e. transfer of goods. Through transfer of knowledge, multidisciplinary research and cross-fertilization between academia and industry, ENDORSE will address the aforementioned technical hurdles. Four innovation pillars will be pursued: (i) infrastructure-less multi-robot navigation, i.e. minimum (if any) installation of sensors and communications buses inside the building for the localization of robots, targets and docking stations; (ii) advanced HRI for resolving deadlocks and achieving efficient sharing of space resources in crowded spaces; (iii) deployment of the ENDORSE software as a cloud-based service facilitating its integration.
