RT Lions win the Sick robot day 2018

The RT Lions and their omnidirectional robot MMO-700 have won first plate at the Sick robot day 2018.

Their MMO-700 used a Sawyer robot arm from Rethink Robotics to pick balls from a moving transport robot and deliver them to a stationary box. Thirteen teams from three countries came to compete in the robot day.

Congratulations to the RT Lions!


MeetIT 2018 at the HHN

In 2018 Neobotix will for the first time participate at the MeetIT job fair at the Hochschule Heilbronn.

We will bring a whole pack of job announcements with us. At the fair we are looking forward to meeting future colleagues and having interesting discussions about software development, mobile robotics and, of course, the thrill of the first real employment.


MPO-500 in space (or close)

A Mecanum robot MPO-500 is now being used for development and testing in the research labs of the esa.

It may not be the first Neobotix robot in space but it is proudly contributing to the development of new technologies for space crafts.





TIREBOT - MPO-500 moves car tires

A Mecanum robot MPO-500 was transformed into the TIREBOT as part of an Echord++ experiment. The robot was designed to move car tires between different machines in tire workshops.

A fascinating YouTube video shows the robot handling car wheels and interacting with human operators.


Service robot Marvin tested successfully
Marvin at reports another successful test of the service robot Marvin. Developed at the HS Ravensburg-Weingarten, Marvin is meant to support disabled people in their daily life.

The robot is based on the omnidirectional MPO-700, which provides the manoeuvrability to move around peoples' homes and fetch items or help with simple tasks.
