What motivates us
Intelligent Machines Stockholm AB (IM) is participating in ECHORD as it offers a unique funding opportunity to bring technology in academia to real world products without the project having to also to deliver a lot of ground breaking new scientific results. It also offers us a way to gain knowledge about state-of-the-art methods for navigation and localization which will make us more competitive in the future.
IM has worked in several commercial projects where new technology is transferred into companies that themselves do not possess the know-how to take that step. The CEO of IntMach, Per Ljunggren, was the project leader in the development of Trilobite Electrolux autonomous vacuum cleaner and as such is one of few in the world that has put a real service robot on the market.
