The project Semantic Product Memory (SemProM) aims at introducing a digital product memory for everyday items. In this context a mobile dual-arm robot is developed for the automatic manipulation and quality control of heterogeneous products. The digital product memory provides the robot with useful handling information as size, weight, lifting points, etc. of the targeted product. The project focuses on the combination of a highly flexible mobile manipulator with the optimal placement of a RFID antenna. The designed robot system will later be applied in areas of production and product distribution, where flexible product manipulation is required.

The mobile dual-arm robot is the first system comprising flexible grippers combined with optimally placed RFID antennae. The digital product memory is read by the antenna and determines the optimal configuration of the grippers. In order to establish full Cartesian positioning together with the ability to cope with obstacles, every arm of the robot has seven degrees of freedom. The robot will automatically navigate and localize itself in a factory production hall and automatically approach a recharging station when its battery power drops below a critical value. It will also be able to communicate with other components and users in the environment. Additionally, it is intended to store a summary of the actual product manipulations performed by the robot in the digital product memory.
