Five projects make the first cut and receive a ROBOTT-NET pilot

It all started with 166 companies spread across 12 European countries appling for a “golden ticket” to ROBOTT-NET’s Voucher Program. 64 companies received a voucher and highly specialized consultancy from a broad range of the brightest robotics experts around Europe. Now five of the 64 projects have been selected for a ROBOTT-NET pilot.

Trumpf, Maser, Picolo, Weibel and Air Liquide are the five companies that will have their technology implemented in a pilot on a real-world use case.

Their voucher work varies greatly. Whilst Trumpf wanted to find out if automated handling of a large variety of sheet metal parts was possible, Picolo was working on generating welding robot programs. Weibel concentrated on flexible PCB Soldering and Air Liquide focused on autonomous goods picking, handling and transportation in industrial environments. Finally, Maser investigated automated systems to detect types of defects in chromed parts.

ROBOTT-NETs mission is to collect and share the latest knowledge about robot technology that can improve production, bring new ideas to market and ensure economic competitiveness.

The pilot will help the companies develop their voucher work through proof of concept level and accelerate it towards commercialisation. It will be a medium-scale research installation that will last for up to 18 months, developing the robot-technology and business case explored in the voucher stage, and applying it to an industrial demonstrator at an end user’s site.

When selecting the five projects, ROBOTT-NET was looking for pilots that will scale well across new applications and create high impact on markets through enhanced productivity, competition and disruption. Scalability and market impact were key measures in the Pilot application.

Other than these five projects, there are more pilots to look forward to as three more pilots will be announced soon.

If you want to know more about the five projects that have been selected for a pilot you can find them on ROBOTT-NET or ROBOTT-NET’s YouTube channel.

Note: ROBOTT-NET will be at HANNOVER MESSE from April 24-27, 2018. If you are there, make sure you pass by Stand G46 in Hall 6 by the European Commission and see project results from EU-funded projects like nextgenio, ultraSURFACE, covr, fed4sae, DiFiCIL, IPP4CPPS, Smart Anything Everywhere (SAE), RADICLE, cloudSME, BEinCPPS, CloudiFacturing & Fortissimo.

Robots can be companions, caregivers, collaborators — and social influencers

People are hardwired to respond socially to technology that presents itself as even vaguely social. While this may sound like the beginnings of a Black Mirror episode, this tendency is precisely what allows us to enjoy social interactions with robots and place them in caregiver, collaborator or companion roles.
