B21 Bender

This is our oldest robot, an RWI B21 type which has undergone major changes throughout its living period at the IAS group. Its wheels allow this robot to move forward and turn around its center axis. Two 6-DOF lightweight arms from Amtec with slide grippers are mounted on this base, allowing for the manipulation of objects at table height. At the moment the robot consists of the following components:


  • RWI omnidirectional platform
  • PowerCube arms
  • PTU unit, type DP-47


  • a Swiss-Ranger SR3000 Time-of-flight camera
  • two high-resolution cameras (2MP) forming stereo setup
  • a SICK LMS400 mounted on the tip of one of the PowerCube arms
  • a SICK laser scanner for localization and navigation
  • multitude of infrared and ultrasonic sensors mounted around the robot's chassis
