Pollen Robotics

City: Toulouse – FRANCE

Application market: Smart Cities / Smart Home / Technology

Booth: R01



Pollen Robotics aims to become a key player in the democratization of robotics by facilitating the creation and use of robots. This revolution will be driven by a scientific and expert vision of robotic design and an acute awareness of the barriers to entry into the field. Pollen Robotics develops a technological solution to significantly reduce this barrier through a complete robotic ecosystem. Pollen Robotics works on a modular architecture that will allow to vary the shape and the capacities (actuators, sensors) of robots with a great versatility and without worrying about the very technical aspects of the interconnection between sub-parts of the robot.

We will present our robotic architecture called Robus. Robus makes it possible to move from a robot idea to its realization in a few minutes. This allows to concentrate on the usages of a robot rather than on its technical aspects.

Robus aims at:

  1. Prototyping a physical robot in 1 day
  2. Developing a robotic application in 1 week
  3. Putting a robot into production in less than 6 months

Robus is therefore a tool to significantly reduce the robot design cycle through the ability to iterate easily between robotic design, applications and user testing.



Unification of mechanical, electronic and computer systems in modular bricks to facilitate their combination in a robotic system. The innovative character is mainly focused on the pooling of a wide range of expertise and technologies, ranging from low-level electronics to visual interfaces, embedded code, mechanical interface and high-level controllers.


Région Pays de la Loire

City: Nantes – FRANCE

Application market: Industry 4.0



For several years, the Pays de la Loire Region has been committed to the development of industrial robotics for the benefit of businesses in the Loire region. In 2005, the first stage was the creation of the Automated and Composite Technological Platform of La Roche-sur-Yon and Vendée. The Regional Council has significantly strengthened its commitment with the launch in 2013 of the PROXINNOV Regional Innovation Platform, a federating place for the development of robotics in the Pays de la Loire region and a regional response to the national Robotization of SMEs / SMIs.
As a continuation of this commitment, the Pays de la Loire Region becomes a main partner alongside La Roche-sur-Yon Agglomeration of the first edition of Robot4Manufacturing in October 2016, a business convention dedicated to industrial robotics.

The Pays de la Loire region in terms of robotics is a regional and local network of manufacturers, integrators, component manufacturers, laboratories, technical centers, providing useful and complementary resources for the development of a strong robotic cluster. But it is also a fabric of SMEs / SMIs interested in robotics, which will enable them to gain in performance, productivity, quality, security, adaptability and thus to win new markets.

For the next few years, the Pays de la Loire Region and La Roche-sur-Yon agglomération wish to further strengthen the robotic cluster around PROXINNOV. Both communities are supporting the Robotic & Manufacturing Industrial Campus project, which could bring together by 2018 a SEPRO training center, an ICAM (5th year robotics) branch, around a range of services and facilities, Accompaniment of companies with first-class testing and testing facilities.

Application market:
Industry 4.0 / Medical & Health /Field robotics / Smart Cities / Technology



Gobio Robot proposes four solutions to improve the working conditions within companies. The Augmented Man with exoskeletons, the Multiplied Man with the cobots, the Protected Man with ergoskeletons and the Assisted Man (articulated zero gravity arms).


Products and Services @Innorobo

Gobio Robot’s exoskeletons and ergoskeletons are mobile and light answer to exposure of repetitive stress injury or cumulative trauma disorder. Those stress are due to bad posture and handling heavy load.

Gobio Robot cobots (lightweight interactive robots and zero-gravity arms) assist the operator as a third arm near the operator, they reduce the repetitive character of the tasks bringing more productivity and precision.


The Ergoskeleton EXO IP13 Laevo version is a wearable chest and back support that adapts to every posture. Everywhere you go, you can lean against the chest pad. Ergoskeleton EXO IP13 Laevo version transfers force from the rest to the thighs. Due to the leverage the force on your chest is 10 times less than what your spine and back muscles have to endure. Every time you experience pressure, your back is saved.

The Ergoskeleton EXO IP12 Skelex version is a non powered upperbody exoskeleton developed at TU Delft. This compact and lightweight device assists in doing laborious jobs involving intensive use of arms more efficiently with lower fatigue.
