Robots in action today
The RoboLab Tampere has been established to facilitate the learning process or both formal and non-formal education, and academia-industry R&D&I collaboration. The RoboLab Tampere operates with similar principles as e.g. Fab Labs.
Learning environment for the future
The RoboLab Tampere offers a place for students to work with robotic equipment and experiment without major restrictions. Robots and related technology are for example industrial manipulators (Kuka Iiwa, Flexfellow, Universal robots, Franka Panda, PRob), mobile robots (turtlebot, MiR100, in-house developed robot), a multitude of sensors (2D/3D ToF cameras, LiDAR, GNSS, IMU, etc.) and different processing platforms (PCs, embedded PCs, Raspberry Pi, Nvidia TX2). The learning environment differs from FabLabs and other learning/teaching factory environments in such way that the lab is available 24/7 to all students interested in robotics.
