Kuka YouBot Mobile Platform Team

The YouBot is a small, versatile mobile robot, designed as an educational robot platform that is also useful for rapidly prototyping ideas involving several mobile robots. The YouBot consists of an omnidirectional platform, with a 5 DOF arm and a 2-finger gripper. Our YouBots come equipped with an array of touch sensors mounted in a custom made harness, to allow for the robots to be used in contact prone environments.

Within ECR, we have used the YouBots for autonomous and multi-robot navigation experiments.

It is available in a few other UK locations.
