Christened Emma by the match, the robotic dog can be controlled and programmed via a tablet. The internal battery allows autonomous operation for up to 90 minutes. Emma has 360-degree all-round vision thanks to its five cameras and can avoid obstacles on its own. Emma can lift objects weighing 5 kg or pull objects weighing up to 25 kg with its gripper arm. The arm also enables the opening and closing of doors and the operation of valves. The canine robot can carry another 14 kg on her torso, providing enough space for additional sensors and data processing. Overall, Emma offers excellent potential for research, development, and teaching at the match and will be a faithful companion to the institute in the field of mobile robotics.
