The development of service robots is a complex and demanding task. Typically highly interdisciplinary, heterogenous and distributed teams need to work together, which again poses various challenges on technical and organisational level. On the other hand, an increasing number of service robotic components, hardware as well as software, becomes available.We believe that integration and distributed development are two of the key factors of successful robot developments.
