Research and Education

Let's build unique solutions together

At Capra Robotics we find it important to contribute to research and innovation for the purpose of advancing the field of robotics. Therefore, we are collaborating with several organizations and digital innovation hubs all over Europe, on projects to come up with new solutions for various challenges across different industries.

This mindset also encourage us to work closely with students and education institutions. This allows us to always be working with the newest research, as well as being a part of shaping the next generation of workers in the field of robotics.

Developing Robots for Outdoor Maintenance

Developing Robots for Outdoor Maintenance

We are lead partner in the RIMA (Robotics for Infrastructure, Inspection and Maintenance) project GUMBOT in a consortium with Gumbusters.

The consortium’s contribution to RIMA project, is a robot to remove the millions of pieces of gum that scatters the cities’ sidewalks. The robot, that we named Chewy, is being developed to assist in removing single-use plastics and creating more aesthetically pleasing cityscape while sparing people of hard and monotonous tasks.

Using Artificial Intelligence

AI identifies cigarette butts

Using Artificial Intelligence

For many of our use cases, the robots need to recognize and interact with key objects in its surroundings. We are working on utilizing visual AI systems that can spot these key objects that the robot needs to interact with such as cigarette butts, chewing gum, and weeds. Much of this work is being done as part of student projects by students from all over Denmark.

Implementing Mobile Robots in Construction

Implementing Mobile Robots in Construction

In the RoboCluster project (now Odense Robotics) CoCoBot we were working along with other members of the consortium on implementing robotics in the promising but difficult field of construction. As construction sites are everchanging and often has challenging terrain, implementing robots proves a unique challenge.

As a specialized outdoor robot, Capra Hircus is perfect for the harsh terrain of the construction site, particularly due to its’ unique suspension system. For this reason, and because of the lack of competition, we find this otherwise challenging field, a perfect area for innovative solutions in our range.

Capra Minima – the Mobile Robot for Research

In addition to our Capra Hircus, we also produce and sell a mobile robot research platform – a smaller research version of our Capra Robot created specifically for research projects. It is called the Capra Minima.

We find it natural to involve researchers, universities, and others interested in developing possibilities for the concept we have created and patented. If that is you, we would love to hear from you!
