Kastanienbaum - Soft-Robotic Natives
Kastanienbaum GmbH is a spin-off of the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics of the German Aerospace Center (DLR-RMC
). Kastanienbaum's vision is the coexistence of humans and robots. Therefore, Kastanienbaum develops innovative software solutions for safe physical human-robot interaction. With their worldwide unique concepts, solutions and algorithms for operating, programming, control and safety of robots it will finally become possible that humans and robots interact or even collaborate with each other.
