IURO focuses on several main aspects, which address core objectives
of the call: perception and appropriate representation of dynamic urban environments, identification of knowledge gaps
arising from dynamically changing situations and contexts not specified a priori, retrieval of missing information from humans
in a natural way by pro-actively approaching them and initiating communication situations. Quantitative and comparative
benchmark measures considering flexibility and robustness regarding navigation and interaction capabilities in real-world
scenarios are developed. IURO targets novel technologies for new commercial service robots with improved flexibility and
dependability. The project consortium combines research in environmental and human action perception, human-robot
interaction and communication aspects, navigation and planning, knowledge representation and assessment, and human
factors studies as well as robot platform development.

The IURO project explores the integration
of information retrieval from humans into robot control architectures to complement their perception and action control
capabilities. IURO follows a multi-disciplinary approach combining environment perception, communication, navigation,
knowledge representation and assessment, and human factors studies as well as a novel robot platform for human-centred
urban environments as a pre-industrial development.
