Financing by crowd funding
'To markedly speed up decisions and cut down on development time, ROBOY will be financed with private funds and constructed by private companies. This means that ROBOY will be financed by exclusive sponsors and through crowd funding. How far we will be able to develop ROBOY will be dependent on your support. In return for a contribution, every supporter will have his name or logo engraved on ROBOY and will receive another token of appreciation.
Open Source Development
Development of ROBOY will be conducted Open Source. This means that all expertise, ideas and inventions will not belong to a specific partner exclusively and every one will have the right to advance ROBOY’s technologies. ROBOY will be the ideal research platform for pioneering research in robotics and will be advanced even further at the AI Lab and other leading research institutions after ROBOTS ON TOUR."
