Communal Robots

BUSSE - Case Study: Communal Robots

As we celebrate our 60th anniversary on Sept. 19, 2019, we asked ourselves what products will look like 60 years from now.

Not only from the perspective of the technologies available and forecast today, but also from the consideration of how we imagine life in 60 years for ourselves. To this end, we have already reviewed many publications and conducted exciting internal creative workshops. We are currently working on some interesting theses based on a number of exemplary products.

The following study looks at how service robots can support people in everyday life in a more versatile and efficient way in the future.

This is done by looking at the modularity and the cooperation of numerous robots in swarms. In the process, the robot was developed for the tasks around the house and for work in public areas.

Situation today

  • Robots help us with tedious everyday tasks
  • Only a few people have such everyday helpers at their disposal
  • A robot is usually specialized and limited to performing one activity

Possible solutions

  • In the future, robots will be able to support people in their everyday lives in a variety of ways
  • The robots will be able to autonomously access locations and tasks
  • Flexible equipping of robots for different fields of application and activities
  • Convenient handling of the robot with regard to costs, maintenance and availability

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."



"With BUSSE as a sparring partner, we were able to successfully work out a brand-defining design for our latest products that was appropriate for the target group. BUSSE understood our internal company processes very well and was therefore able to deliver optimal results. Deadlines were always met, you can rely on BUSSE. Anytime again!"



"We were positively surprised by the collaboration with BUSSE in that the focus was not solely on the appearance of our product, but rather on the interplay of economical manufacturing solutions, optimized ergonomics and a functional design. The result now impresses with a coherent, unprecedented design concept."
