4MOB is an  all-terrain autonomous robot that carries heavy loads up to 300 kg in outdoor logistics. It targets industrial, construction, agricultural and outdoor operations. 4MOB has a great ease of mobility and the ability to carry a payload following a specific mission. This robot can also be operated in person tracking mode and can be remotely operated.

Its uniqueness lies in its great ability to move automatically move, indoors, outdoors and on any type of road. The maximum speed is 7 km/h and the maximum admisible slope is 30%. Thanks to these characteristics and its integration facilities, the platform can evolve as needed.

4MOB offers the opportunity to embed, on a standard interface, modules for different applications, according to the task being performed and the place where the vehicle is located. The payload capacity is up to 300kg.

4MOB, is an autonomous intelligent platform compliant with the standards. It iscertified CE and uses a configuration called autonomous navigation, which means that it can operates on its own, without the presence of a man. From starting point to destination, it can follow different routes which have been initially programmed, while managing obstacle avoidance (bumpers, obstacle detection, emergency shutdown systems …). It can operate in a 2D elevator, that is to say that when called, it goes from point A to point B in full autonomy.



  • Transport of heavy loads
  • All Terrain
  • Autonomous, teleoperated or in follow me mode
  • Robust
  • Various applications: external operations, construction, agriculture, logistics

Robobox was founded in March 2016 by Jonathan Trévier. After studying business in Nantes, Jonathan decided to dedicate himself to his passion for robotics and programming. He took a number of online courses in robotics programming and machine learning before starting Robobox, the first subscription box dedicated to robotics.

These monthly boxes containing electronic components and 3D-printed parts offer increasingly complex programming, electronics and robotics projects. This unique concept offers a fun way to progressively learn about a discipline that will shape the world of tomorrow. Robobox also provides a solution to one of the paradoxes of Internet: with MOOCs, we all have access to unlimited knowledge, but to take these classes, you have to be truly proactive. With Robobox, the rhythm and community help to provide a stimulating framework for learning.

In one year, the Robobox team has tripled in size and distributes its educational robots throughout Europe.

Robobox offers subscriptions to robotics boxes, each kit containing Arduino-compatible 3D-printed components and parts. What’s more, the box is not limited to the components, but also includes all of the instructions necessary to build the projects, as well as access to an online community where subscribers can get assistance when working on their projects.

The first months enable beginners to become familiar with the basic principles of electronics by building an infrared alarm. Subscribers then move onto building a jointed arm, a robotic dog, a robotic car and a motorcycle, ending with a drone. To allow everyone to discover robotics, the projects can be programmed in either Scratch (an easy language) or C++ (more advanced).

Robobox is designed for young people ages 10 and up, parents or anyone looking for a new challenge.

Robotex: the national network of robotics platforms (N°ANR-10-EQPX-44-01)

The French government has decided to invest over 10 million Euro for equipment of national research platforms in various domains of robotics. (investissements d’avenir).
This national network of platforms is called ROBOTEX. The main goal of the ROBOTEX is to setup coherent infrastructures of technical equipment in order to :

  • Promote scientific exchange and development of collaborative work between academic research teams, companies and end- users, and provide durable and reusable expertise and know–how,
  • Give researchers high-level equipments with a facilitated access,
  • Increase the visibility of the French robotics academic research and its international impact. It particularly concerns the strengthening of its European scientific leadership, and the increase of collaborative works with leading European countries as well as at an international level,
  • Boost the competitiveness of French companies and open new markets based on robotic technologies.

The experimental platforms of the ROBOTEX national network mostly belong to joint CNRS-university laboratories with strong research and development activities in robotics, and having the necessary human resources to give access and provide optimal exploitation of the platforms. This national network links together most of the leading academic robotics research teams in France.

ROBOTEX draws on 27 teams in 15 research laboratories and it is structured in 5 thematic sub-networks :

  • Production robotics – RobProd
  • Mobile robotics – RobMob
  • Medical robotics – RobMed
  • Micro-Nanorobotics – MicroRob
  • Humanoid Robotics and Natural Interactions – RHIN



Robotex network federates technical and experimental means of robotic platforms. It enabled the pooling of human and material resources and the important co-financing projects valuing equipment platforms.
