Robotex is the french national network of robotics platforms of excellence. Robotex draws on 27 research teams in 15 laboratories (~1,000 researchers, engineers, PhD students) and it is structured in 5 themes: Humanoid Robotics and Natural Interactions (RHIN); Medical robotics (RobMed); Mobile robotics (RobMob); Micro-Nanorobotics (MicroRob); Production robotics (RobProd)
Its main goal is to setup a consistent infrastructure of technical platforms in order to:
Promote scientific exchange and development of collaborative work between academic research teams, companies and end-users, and provide durable and reusable expertise,
Give researchers high-level equipment with a facilitated access,
Increase the visibility of the French robotics academic research and its international impact. It particularly concerns the strengthening of its European scientific leadership, and the increase of collaborative works with leading European countries as well as at an international level,
Boost the competitiveness of French companies and open new markets based on robotic technologies.
Share common development and expertise among the partners
The experimental platforms of the ROBOTEX national network mostly belong to joint CNRS/INRIA-University laboratories with strong research and development activities in robotics, and with the necessary human resources to give access and provide optimal exploitation of the platforms.
The investment phase of the project (total € 9 million) is made of 80 robotic equipment for the 15 partners.
Since 2013, the Robotex network has initiated technological days bringing together all the engineers and technicians managing robotic systems development and experimentations on the platforms in order to share development and experimental know-how)
This initiative led to the creation of a robotic and professional network in 2016.
