“SeRoNet” helps users, especially the ones with little or no knowledge of robotics, to identify automation potential and implement it cost-effectively in short development cycles. Modern platform tools make it possible for users to specify solution requirements interactively. AI-based algorithms then find the optimal implementation partners and solution concepts.
Service robots are highly sophisticated systems that are invariably complex and costly to manufacture. This makes it difficult to use service robots flexibly and economically. One challenge lies in the high software development costs incurred when adapting the robot to the respective use case.
One reason why these development costs are so high is that software components are not standardized. A further aspect is the lack of structured concepts for developing complex control systems for service robots.
“SeRoNet” takes up this challenge. With its platform xito.one, it offers manufacturing companies and especially SMEs low-threshold access to modular robot solutions, such as for intralogistics and handling. Suppliers and developers of robot solutions also benefit from a standardized marketplace and cooperation opportunities through SeRoNet. The platform operated by Toolify Robotics GmbH, a startup that emerged from the SeRoNet project, helps new robot users define their automation requirements and provides manufacturers and users with a case-specific overview of the market. In this way, the platform brings providers and users together, offering a single point of contact from the project idea to its implementation.
The modern SeRoNet modular system aims to significantly reduce the development effort for solution providers and to enable cost-effective and customized solutions to be built that can grow easily and economically in line with changing requirements.
In addition, the platform offers component and solution providers a curated marketplace for their products and services. Companies also benefit from appropriate support concerning their customer queries through automated AI-based mediation. The development tools developed and supplied by the IPA experts enable seamless integration into the ROS industrial world. Even after the end of the project, on request, IPA offers to carry out customer-specific research and development work on robot solutions from SeRoNet or xito.one components.
