Mobility of the future:
imaging sensors + robotics
= autonomous vehicles
RES’ philosophy is that there is not one form of expertise or one market, but rather a hybrid mix of expertise for specific markets worldwide. These can be defined as follows:
Specialized automotive products
Vehicles that are suitable for autonomous transport operate in specific fields such as People Movers at airports, car parks and rural environments (The neighbourhood bus) – market segments in which ‘normal’ car manufacturers currently do not dare to venture.
Robotic developments for hospitals and nursing homes such as fall detection or epilepsy detection using existing or new cameras. Also lifestyle monitoring for elderly people who want to continue to live independently.
Robots can perform industrial inspection tasks in hazardous or high-noise environments, or can be controlled remotely in large, unmanned locations such as gas and oil terminals.
The team from TU Delft work closely with RES on projects for the Ministry of Safety and Justice. These include monitoring in prison and surveillance of the movements of suspect people for the security services. Many of these projects are funded by the Dutch Government or the EU.
RES makes vehicles that are suitable for autonomous transport such as People Movers at airports, car parks and rural environments (The neighbourhood bus).
