The project

With RoboLibri a mobile robot platform was developed together with FAU Erlangen-Nuremberg, which is equipped with a novel RFID reader architecture for autonomous inventory and very precise product localization in all three spatial directions as required in agile intralogistics.

In addition, multimodal interaction interfaces are integrated on the platform for people guidance in the context of intelligent production environments or as a service application, e.g. for libraries.

Likewise, a general information provision of RoboLibri ensures easy access to the meta information of the inventoried products.

  • highest precision RFID tag detection with 99% detection rate
  • low operating costs
  • process improvement
  • effort reduction for employees
  • easy usability for employees and visitors
  • simplified, direct search in the catalog via voice control
  • individually customizable evaluation of book positions, including interactive visualization
