Handheld robots, aim to share physical proximity with users but are neither fully independent as is a humanoid robot nor are part of the user's body, as are exoskeletons. The aim with handheld robots is to capitalize on exploiting the intuitiveness of use of traditional handheld tools while adding embedded intelligence and action to open up new capabilities.
This page collects information on the designs we are creating for studying the novel concept of Cognitive, Cooperative Handheld Robots. Designs are offered for research purposes only and without any guarantee. They should be made and used by experienced and qualified researchers. Please cite our research papers if you use them.
