Heron is a recently constituted privately held startup-company whose main focus is to develop and implement advanced breakthrough solutions in the fields of robotics, artificial cognitive systems, AI and of intelligent autonomous systems.
Core developments are in the fields of reliable modular and commoditized enabling platform for challenging visual/multimodal
manipulation and grasping tasks, planning and control of robot swarms, advanced planning and control in the field of service, entertainment, health care robotics and web enabled robotics applications for service, leisure, health care.
Some of the 'novel' activities are related to :
- statistical/stocastical identification and control algorithms, in particular based on polinomial identification, belief space planning, etc.
artificial self healing cognitive systems
- AI technologies, in particular 'commodity' rule based environments and applications
- architectures for the deployment of loosely coupled massive swarms of intelligent autonomous robot agents.
With a special enphasis on modularity, scalability, commodity tools, standard platforms, easyness of integration.
It also provides consultancy and training in the same fields.
It is part of several robotics research and business networks.
