  • InFuse -  Common Data Fusion Framework (CDFF) for Space Robotics

    InFuse aims to develop a comprehensive data fusion toolset for robot sensors which will  serve   in the context of many space robotics applications, on planetary surface as well as in orbit . The InFuse CDFF is beign  developed relying on the expertise of partners having substantial experience with a perception and navigation  and a wide range of robotic applications – both in space and terrestrial conditions. Duration:  01.11.2016  - 31.01.2019. Sponser: European Union. European Commission.    Website: https://www.h2020-infuse.eu

Past  projects:

  • OOS- End to End
  • eDeorbit
  • DEOS: motion estimation of a client satellite for on-orbit servicing
  • FORROST- Robotische On-Orbit-Servicing Technologien (Bayerische Forschungsstiftung) - development of robotic on-orbit technologies
