The list of the new H2020 project in robotics from Call 3 2016 and the call under Societal Challenges 2016 is ready. The 17 robotics projects funded under Horizon 2020 will work with a wide variety of research and innovation themes: health robotics, autonomous cars, industrial robotics and logistics to events media productions.


An.Dy: Safety certified robots with the ability to react to unintentional contacts (co-bots).

Badger: Autonomous underground robotic system that can drill, manoeuvre, localise, map and navigate in the underground space.

Co4Robots: Different multi-tasking robots with varying capabilities deployed to provide services such as object handling/transportation, or pickup and delivery operations.

CYBERLEGs Plus Plus: powered robotic ortho-prosthesis to help restore mobility allowing amputees to perform physical activity.

Dreams4Cars: Focusing on rare events, such as near miss car accidents the robots can develop safe behaviours for hypothetical/unexperienced situations.

HEPHAESTUS: Cable-robots using 3D to help with high risk and critical construction tasks such as prefab wall installation.

ILIAD: Flexible and rock-solid reliable intra-logistic systems, which can be quickly deployed and integrated in current warehouse facilities, in particular in the food sector, yet guaranteeing safe operation in environments shared with humans.

IMAGINE: The project seeks to enable robots to understand the structure of their environment and how it is affected by its actions.

MoveCare: A multi-actor platform to supports the independent living of the elderly at home by monitoring, assist and promoting activities to counteract decline and social exclusion

MULTIDRONE: multi-drone platform for media production to cover outdoor events with improved robustness, security and safety mechanisms.

REELER: Tackling major societal concerns the project will formulate guidelines in the REELER Roadmap for distributed responsibility among roboticists, users/affected stakeholders and policy-makers by closing the current gap between these.

REFILLS: A robotic systems able to address the in-store logistics needs of the retail market.

RobMoSys: The project proposes composable models and software for robotics systems building an open and sustainable, agile and multi-domain European robotics software ecosystem.

ROSIN: The project aims to create a step change in the availability of high-quality intelligent robot software components for the European industry by building on the existing open-source “Robot Operating System” (ROS) framework and leveraging its worldwide community.

ROPOD: Cost-effective and human-friendly automated guided vehicles (AGVs) for logistic tasks.

SMARTsurg: Smart wearable robotic tele operated surgery focusing on real-world surgical scenarios of urology, vascular surgery, and soft tissue orthopaedic surgery.

VERSATILE: Flexible robotic cells with dual robot arms that can adapt automatically to the high number of different products in industries such as automotive, aerospace and handling and packaging.
