A greater autonomy and fluidity of movement
RB3D is specialized in strength assistance. Initiated by French DGA (Direction générale de l’armement) with their RAPID program, RB3D started to develop HERCULE in 2009. Its development was made in partnership with CEA List and ESME SUDRIA., HERCULE was exhibited in several occasions : at MILIPOL Fair in october 2011, and EUROSATORY in june 2012.
Following the first evaluations, DGA encouraged new developments both for civilian and military applications. In parallel with a second RAPID program from DGA, RB3D started the project to develop a Civilian exoskeleton for to carry and manipulate loads and tools. This new project got the attention of additionnal financial partners who provided us significant ressources to allow the design of HERCULE V3 in 2013.
This 3rd version of HERCULE is dedicated to civilian applications. It has been thought as a development platform for industrial applications, upon which will come various kind of arms or accessories to fit with and fulfill the needs of the numerous industrial cases we target.
As an open software version, HERCULE can adress as well R&D labs that look upon to make reasearch activities on exoskeletons and control/command programs.
