Our story

Interactive Robotics originated at TU Delft, where founders Joachim de Greeff, Koen Hindriks and Joost Broekens worked in research groups on artificial intelligence, social robots and human-robot interaction. “We noticed that many of the advanced techniques, algorithms and ideas were hardly applied in practice. That’s where the idea behind Interactive Robotics came from: making social robots usable for different purposes. ”

We believe that social robots will increasingly become a part of everyday life and strive to get maximum value from them. It provides a scalable cloud-based software platform for managing social robots and robot applications. In addition, there is also an intuitive development platform for easily creating social robot applications (by non-technical people). Extremely suitable in education and in healthcare.

Interactive Robotics actively participates in the developments. We work together with Delft University and Leiden University. We are working internationally in a European project Animatas to make social robots suitable for use in education.

Our customers

Many of our clients are educational institutions. In primary education, children practice arithmetic and language with the robot, pre-school children program with tickets and children make interactive speaking engagements. In secondary education, human-robot interaction is being developed and students can continue programming in python and javascript. In higher education, students use our system to easily prototype HRI and to use our platform to create experimental software for graduation projects and research. Find out for yourself!

Additionally, we provide social robot services for a number of care organizations such as hospitals and care homes.
