Our Mission

Developing software that allows robots to see, feel, take decisions and autonomously move

Our Background

OZZIE robotics is a spin-off company of the Information Technologies Institute (ITI) of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH), building upon the 20-year long experience of the founding team in relevant research projects.

We develop cutting edge software for service robots that operate in indoor, outdoor and smart environments. Robots that can detect humans, understand their actions and interact with them. Robots that can take decisions based on the state of their environment. Robots that autonomously move, grasp and manipulate objects. Robots that operate in diverse settings, from homes and caregiving settings through to public spaces, warehouses and factories for human-robot collaboration and logistics purposes.

Alongside, we design and develop from scratch custom service robots, building the hardware and integrating the necessary software that enables them to fulfill their aims.
