Sharework partners have participated in two workshops hosted within the European Robotics Forum (ERF 2021), which took place in a virtual format on April 13-15.
The project was presented at the workshop “8th Hybrid Production Systems”, organised by Sharework’s partner Dr. Sotiris Makris and Dr. George Michalos from the Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems & Automation (LMS) of the University of Patras. This workshop, being organised yearly since 2014, aims at presenting the recent developments and application in the hybrid production systems area.
During this year session, Néstor Garcia, researcher at Eurecat’s Robotics and Automation Research Unit and Sharework Principal Investigator, delivered the presentation “Sharework: A step further in collaborative robotics” and explained the main advances and work done, as well as the status of each of the industrial demonstrators for the validation of the technologies developed.
On the other hand, this workshop also counted with the participation of Marco Faroni, project’s partner and researcher at CNR-STIIMA. Faroni delivered the presentation “Enhancing flexibility of manufacturing processes via human-aware motion planning”, in which explained the conclusions of the Pickplace European project and how they are being continued in Sharework project.
Moreover, Stefano Ellero, Business Area Manager of Robotics and Mechatronics Department at STAM participated in the workshop “Technology Transfer Stories on Agile Production and Robotics”, organised by DIH2, a Pan-European network of 26 robotics Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) to promote and accelerate the adoption of the latest robotic technologies in the field of Agile Production.
During this workshop, Ellero explained the “ICON” demonstration funded in the TRINITY project and mentioned Sharework as a key project developing solutions for human robotics collaboration.
The European Robotics Forum, organised by euRobotics under SPARC, is the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe which covers all aspects and current themes related to the field of robotics. This event brought together experts, researchers, engineers, managers and business people from all over Europe to discuss how innovation in robotics and AI can be accelerated.
