An approach for studying relations between robot applications, robot technologies and market domains topics is introduced in this contribution. Questionnaires for gathering data in bilateral research projects with a research institutes and an industrial company as partners are proposed. A circular cosmograph chart is suggested for visualising the data intuitively. The approach is demonstrated in a small scale study with 46 projects. The relations between robot applications and robotic technology clusters and market domains are made visible by the resulting chart. The described approach is a completely new way of analysing and representing developments in the field of robotic research and robot applications.
