Franka Emika x Robina Project

FRANKA EMIKA is proud to share it is part of the ROBINA project that focuses on creating a lightweight robotic solution to aid patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The illness that affected Stephen Hawking usually develops after the age of 60, causing the death of neurons controlling voluntary movement muscles. ALS patients are frequently frustrated by the inability to perform basic tasks and require extensive care of relatives and medical personnel. ROBINA together with its partners seeks to provide them with autonomy and unload caregivers by creating a special system with multimodal controls (voice, gesture, touch and electromyography) to aid with mundane tasks and actions from early stages of the disease to severe paralysis. FRANKA EMIKA is the first lightweight robot system of the new generation that fully focuses on people - be it in everyday life to support the elderly and sick or as a helper and colleague in the factory. http://www.projekt-robina.de/

MATLAB Expo 2017

Sami Haddadin - Head of the Institute of Automatic Control at Leibniz University Hannover and father of FRANKA EMIKA gave a keynote speech at the MATLAB Expo in Munich on June 27th. The FRANKA EMIKA Team presented a demo at the event where participants could learn how to teach the lightweight robot various tasks and get more information on technical details and the application range of this smart power tool. We want to thank MATLAB Expo for the successful organization of such a great event. More Information you will find here.

Ideen Expo 2017

We firmly believe in the importance of education and learning through discovery. For a long time robotic engineering was perceived as a closed and even dangerous field only insiders had access to. We were honored and proud to spend 9 days at the IdeenExpo 2017 - one of the biggest fairs in Hannover that attracts over 360.000 people. There, a group of student from Roberta Regiozentrum Hannover, BBSIme, BBS Neustadt and Leibniz Universitat Hannover could showcase what they learned by interacting with our highly sensitive lightweight robot FRANKA EMIKA, teaching it to perform various fun and not-so-easy tasks, with no previous experience in robotics to even younger visitors. Our team brought 7 demos and 8 lightweight robots – a personal record, to let the guests see how easy it is to operate FRANKA EMIKA. The students demonstrated such solutions as opening a bottle, assembling a flashlight in only 1 min., and producing colorful buttons with FRANKA EMIKA's help, among many other interesting tasks. The even younger guests of the fair could also take part in programming FRANKA. Many of them became excited and interested in the field of robotic engineering after visitning out booth.

Daho.am 2017

Our team was thrilled to spend May 30th at the Daho.am Deep Tech conference here in Munich. We welcomed many visitors at our booth, giving everyone the opportunity to learn robotics and program FRANKA EMIKA on the spot. Company's co-founder Simon Haddadin participated in the Disruption and Startup tracks. He gave a keynote speech talking about our innovative sensitive lightweight robot and company timeline, followed by a robotics panel along with other industry representatives. The event allowed for great networking, recruiting (we’re still actively hiring, check out our careers page!) and was packed with inspiration from other speakers’ presentations.

Mensch und Maschine – in bester Gesellschaft?

„Die neuen Technologien werfen eine Fülle von sozialen, ethischen, rechtlichen und kulturellen Fragen auf, denen wir uns stellen müssen. Ich finde, wir sollten das mit Pioniergeist tun – und mit Zuversicht, dass es gelingen wird, die Herausforderungen gemeinsam zu meistern.“
