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.

DR 8.4.6: Updated market analysis for USAR robots with HRI

This report serves for orientation on the current robotics market, with a specific focus on the USAR-relevant segment. It helps us to place the NIFTi UGV and UAV prototypes and the end user requirements it is based on, relative to potential competitors. Regarding UGVs, this reports provides an update of the market analysis of USAR robots with HRI which we conducted in Year 1. We again focus on man-portable robots, suitable for reconnaissance & mapping missions in Urban Search & Rescue. We also elaborate on the HRI interfaces. Additionally we provide a survey of UAVs suitable for search&rescue. We close with a discussion of what benefits the features of the NIFTi UGV and UAV had in the Mirandola 2012 deployment.
