The development of a mobile robot to assist people in their home is a long term goal of Fraunhofer IPA. In order to meet this goal, three generations of a robotic home assistant "Care-O-bot®" have been developed so far. As a vision of a future household product, Care-O-bot® 3 is equipped with the latest industrial state-of-the art hardware components. It offers all modern multimedia and interaction equipment as well as most advanced sensors and control. It is able to navigate among humans, detect and grasp objects and pass them safely to human users using its tray. Care-O-bot® 3 has been presented to the public on several occasions where it distributed drinks to the visitors of trade fairs and events.
