About NIFTi
NIFTi is about human-robot cooperation. About teams of robots and humans doing tasks together, interacting together to try and reach a shared goal. NIFTi looks at how the robot could bear the human in mind. Literally. When determining what to do or say next in human-robot interaction; when, and how. NIFTi puts the human factor into cognitive robots, and human-robot team interaction in particular.   Each year, NIFTi evaluates its systems together with several USAR organizations. Rescue personnel teams up with NIFTi robots to carry out realistic missions, in real-life training areas.

NIFTi end users meeting on use cases and scenarios

TNO, DFKI and FDDO met in Dortmund to discuss use cases. Given typical missions for FDDO and CNVF, the goal was to define use cases that scale in complexity similarly to the NIST USAR standards, but that at the same time illustrate real-life scenarios that can be tested in the training areas NIFTi has access to.
