Case Studies

The project’s final goal is to test and quantify the aforementioned four objectives in terms of safety, feasibility, intuitiveness, adaptability and scalability of collaboration between humans and robots. Hence, a test-bed will be developed to showcase the envisioned technologies, innovations and competitiveness in this project. Furthermore, three demonstrators placed in three European Member States are planned: in food-processing, aeronautic and automotive industries each. The three industries have been chosen for several reasons. First, they represent industries of lower (food-processing) and higher complexity (engine assembly in automotive). Also, the whole industry (food-processing) or parts of it (engine assembly) are robot-reluctant but could benefit from more automation. Lastly, the project members want to cover a wide scope as they address system integrators as well as end users.
