ROBOY HAS GRADUATED

FROM ROBOY TO ROBODIES, A NEW ERA HAS BEGUN.

Over the last years, Roboy has grown from a visionary with an idea who adopted a robot, into a student team of more than 50, then into a not-for-profit research company. Now, we’re taking the next step, leaving our playful, explorative phase and entering a phase, where we create value not just for our corporate and research partners, but soon end customers. Because we care, for the planet, for humanoids to become ubiquitous, for a connected society, we say “Bye Roboy”, “Hello Robody” (close enough, really). So if you’ve always wondered what Roboy might be good for, here’s your answer.

Well not here: here!

(You got to click, for it to click.)

(In case you wonder, this page will no longer be updated, but it’s so full of information and beautiful memories of all the lives we’ve touched, it would be a shame to just take it offline!)

Successful collaborations!
4000 hugs and counting: roboy is the cutest robot!

A MORE HUMAN ROBOT

Roboy’s Vision is simple: build better robots until they are as good as the human body.

That is why Roboy robots imitate the human body with muscles and tendons, just as we have. This enables softer motions, safer robots and also better understanding of how we control our bodies.

Taking the human body as a template, our own existence is proof that eventually we will be able to build robots just as good. All we need to do is to figure out how.

Galileo: Roboy der menschlichste Roboter der Welt

Um den weltweit menschenähnlichsten Roboter der Welt zu finden, müssen wir gar nicht so weit reisen – der heißt nämlich Roboy und wird in Garching bei München entwickelt. Aber was genau macht ihn so besonders?

Next 2 Years: XPRIZE

A prize made for Roboy – For the first time, a price plays to the strengths of Roboy and its musculoskeletal approach. This makes us even more determined, to build the best telepresence robot in the world.

ON THE ROAD

loved by the crowds

In contrast to virtually everyone else, we’re not afraid of showing our robots before they’re completely done. We use the crowds to test early, to talk about our work and to make sure, you love the robots we build.

Roadmap

the moon is not the limit

Roboy is a true moonshot, where the commercially viable at-scale solution lies decades away. To break this monumental task down into achieve- and fundable steps, we implement a vision roadmap that first gradually challenges our robots and then creates commercial value in different fields to accelerate our progress.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND OUR ROBOTS

modular musculoskeletal robots

Compliant, musculoskeletal robotic systems offer several advantages, especially in situations where human and robot work in close proximity. A musculoskeletal design makes extensive use of elastic materials to emulate the muscles and tendons which enhance safety, dexterity and adaptivity in uncertain environments. It also allows reducing body weight and developmental cost, while at the same time increasing design flexibility.
