All s/w modules, including those providing the basic architectures and those providing for the real-time control of I-SUPPORT (such as reading of sensor data, sensor fusion, tracking, motion planning and collision avoidance, knowledge management, learning, human-robot interaction) will be properly implemented into a set of libraries efficiently interfacing the ROS architecture functionalities.
  • Adaptation of a commercial wireless handle/sensor and its integration into the system. The sensor will be used for tele-manipulation of the soft-robotic arm in a master/slave mode.
  • OMEGA will act as the Quality Manager in WP8 and will also coordinate the dissemination planning of the project.
