This video shows robot ROSE performing some basic autonomous manipulation tasks. Robot ROSE was deployed by Heemskerk Innovative Technology (HiT) for 6 weeks in October and November 2022 at St. Marien-Hospital, in Cologne. During autonomous manipulation, ROSE focused on robustness of execution in dynamic care environments. The goal is to show a basic implementation of robust autonomous manipulation, in order to use this for logistical support in the future. Furthermore, ROSE performed her autonomous routine tasks, i.e., checking if clients were risk of falling.
The ROSE-C19R Covid Response Call project was funded by DIH HERO. Special thanks to the organization for this opportunity. Furthermore, special thanks to all the people at St. Marien-Hospital for the warm collaboration during the project.
