The Interdisciplinary Center of the Polytechnic of Turin, PIC4SeR, aims to coordinate the activities of various research groups, already active in the various departments, on the enabling technologies necessary for the development of robots that can support human beings in work or daytime activities, becoming real safe and reliable “companions”. In this way it will be possible to merge and integrate innovative solutions related not only to control, perception, artificial intelligence and cognition, to locomotion systems, to intelligent mechanical architectures, to the impolementation and supply of energy, but also to aspects of design, interaction, security, as well, as social, economic and ethical issues. The PIC4SeR experience therefore stands as a support to all the necessary development phases, leading to the design, simulation and manufacturing of the basic components that will allow the new era of “service robots”.
