This master thesis project is dealing with the rise of robots as an object working in harmony with humans. The development on social robots is still very limited, and the area exudes that other professions aren’t
digging into this world, so the development is based on robot engineers alone. This is where DEVit sees a potential to work within unclaimed territory, being Industrial Designer that approach the area in a whole
different way. The project will have little research to work upon, as the key focus areas of design and interaction within this area is undefined.
The developed product is Flexbot, and it is what would be defined as a ballbot. The solution has redefined what a robot should look like when operating amongst people, and along with it are demands to key aspects of making the software ideal. Additionally is the solution based on a business case that enables it to be various and flexible in a way that lowers the entry barrier of dealing with robots. To realize these
elements, the construction of the solution has been thoroughly designed to be usable in unique settings.
