HOBBIT Project FP7 Project Organisation
In HOBBIT, the project is organised by work packages and core teams, resulting in a matrix organisation (see chart below).
The work packages and their partner leaders are the following:
|WP 1||User Involvement and Specifications||AAF|
|WP 2||User-Interface and Acceptance Design||ULUND|
|WP 3||Robot-User Interaction and Behaviour Model||TUW|
|WP 4||Robot-Enviroment (AAL) Interaction||HEL|
|WP 5||Localisation, tracking and Gesture Interface||FORth|
|WP 6||Robot Navigation and Manipulation||TUW|
|WP 7||Plattform Design and Development||OB|
|WP 8||System Integration and Assembly||TUW|
|WP 9||Exploitation and Dissemination||OB|
|WP 10||Project Management||TUW|
A part from the classical work package structure, people are assigned to lead core teams or serve as team members based on the core groups needs rather than on their work package descriptions. Although the core team leaders may have some administrative authority over team members, for the most part, the core team leaders guide, coordinate, and facilitate their core teams.
Each team member has at least two people giving her direction - a core team leader and a work package leader.
