    ITIA completes the semi-final Round of EuRoC Challenge

    ITIA coordinates the Challenger Team PIROS http://www.euroc-project.eu/index.php?id=piros in the highly-competitive contest for winning the Finals of EU Project European Robotics Challenges (EuRoC) http://www.euroc-project.eu/index.php?id=challenge_1

    As Challenge 1 forerunners after the previous Rounds, we completed our final demonstration session earlier last month in Stuttgart (Fraunhofer IPA). We deployed a collaborative robot solution for assisting the manual assembly of machining pallets.
    Our End Users (MCM http://www.mcmspa.it/english/ together with Cembre SpA http://www.cembre.it/group) was actually performing the task, with a real hands-on "touch and feel" experience about the benefits of collaborative robots. With a friendly app, a solid software integration backbone for flexible task programming, a number of core advanced robot control routines, our task was successfully completed by a non-expert user. Last, we do care about safety and are actively exploring the most advanced collaborative modes and new methods for analysing risks.

    What’s next? The next Round (the Finals!) will be a real shopfloor deployment of our robot solution.. coming soon!

    More info? federico.vicentini@itia.cnr.it

    Overview of PIROS Showcase Round application

    Diversity and adaptability of small production batches. Fast setup and reconfiguration. Supervision and augmented role of human operators. Safety. These are the hot keywords in the world of machine tools and shopfloors, where collaborative robots are expected to provide a substantial help to machine operators. Despite a high degree of automation, in fact, machining shopfloors experience a remarkable number of manual operations in pallet and fixtures setup, quality inspection of machined items, handling of raw materials.
    PIROS solution: a collaborative robot unit, including

    • a modular software framework for loading "library tasks",
    • a mobile device app for loading a "playlist" of user-defined tasks,
    • a library of functional routines (force control for enabling collaborative assembly, bin-picking for loading materials, motion planning for optimizing the comfort of operators, perception for gesture recognition, etc),
    • a dynamic model-based risk assessment tool for supporting hazards identification and risk reduction in human-robot interaction (in cooperation with DEEP-SE group in Politecnico di Milano http://deepse.dei.polimi.it/)

    Benefits: operators are free to allocate robot tasks at runtime, while organizing their supervisory tasks among multiple machining tools. End users (machining and assembly shopfloors) can experience a competitive advantage in allowing added-value time to operators, improving ergonomics, prevent the saturation of operators’ tasks.

    ITIA completes the semi-final Round of EuRoC Challenge

    ITIA coordinates the Challenger Team PIROS http://www.euroc-project.eu/index.php?id=piros in the highly-competitive contest for winning the Finals of EU Project European Robotics Challenges (EuRoC) http://www.euroc-project.eu/index.php?id=challenge_1

    As Challenge 1 forerunners after the previous Rounds, we completed our final demonstration session earlier last month in Stuttgart (Fraunhofer IPA). We deployed a collaborative robot solution for assisting the manual assembly of machining pallets.
    Our End Users (MCM http://www.mcmspa.it/english/ together with Cembre SpA http://www.cembre.it/group) was actually performing the task, with a real hands-on "touch and feel" experience about the benefits of collaborative robots. With a friendly app, a solid software integration backbone for flexible task programming, a number of core advanced robot control routines, our task was successfully completed by a non-expert user. Last, we do care about safety and are actively exploring the most advanced collaborative modes and new methods for analysing risks.

    What’s next? The next Round (the Finals!) will be a real shopfloor deployment of our robot solution.. coming soon!

    More info? federico.vicentini@itia.cnr.it

    Overview of PIROS Showcase Round application

    Diversity and adaptability of small production batches. Fast setup and reconfiguration. Supervision and augmented role of human operators. Safety. These are the hot keywords in the world of machine tools and shopfloors, where collaborative robots are expected to provide a substantial help to machine operators. Despite a high degree of automation, in fact, machining shopfloors experience a remarkable number of manual operations in pallet and fixtures setup, quality inspection of machined items, handling of raw materials.
    PIROS solution: a collaborative robot unit, including

    • a modular software framework for loading "library tasks",
    • a mobile device app for loading a "playlist" of user-defined tasks,
    • a library of functional routines (force control for enabling collaborative assembly, bin-picking for loading materials, motion planning for optimizing the comfort of operators, perception for gesture recognition, etc),
    • a dynamic model-based risk assessment tool for supporting hazards identification and risk reduction in human-robot interaction (in cooperation with DEEP-SE group in Politecnico di Milano http://deepse.dei.polimi.it/)

    Benefits: operators are free to allocate robot tasks at runtime, while organizing their supervisory tasks among multiple machining tools. End users (machining and assembly shopfloors) can experience a competitive advantage in allowing added-value time to operators, improving ergonomics, prevent the saturation of operators’ tasks.

    Important European Commission survey on Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMT)

    This survey takes place in a strategic project that our Consortium, composed by Fraunhofer-ISI, ITIA-CNR, IDEA Consult e VTT-Technical Research Centre of Finland, conducts on behalf of the European Commission on Advanced Manufacturing Technologies to perform a study entitled:

    “An analysis of drivers, barriers and readiness factors of European companies for adopting advanced manufacturing products and technologies".

    We are particularly interested in identifying the main drivers and barriers related to the diffusion of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies and knowing how companies perceive the drivers and barriers related to the diffusion of Advanced Manufacturing Technologies in the European industry.

    The findings will provide input for policy recommendation for the European Union.

    We estimate that it will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete the questionnaire and your answers will be treated strictly confidential and will be processed anonymously.

    MiMAN-T external user testing results “Extremely encouraging”

    MiMAN-T aims to create a complete training system that provides a comparative overview on all the up to date Micro-Manufacturing Technologies (MMT) together with technical and economic details, allowing participants to develop and manufacture miniaturised products. The online E-Learning platform will be supplemented by a Springer publication; a reference book for industry, co-developed by leading EU project partners.

    External user testing
    After development and extensive internal testing, over 200 invitations were sent to organisations requesting feedback. Project leader (Dr Irene Fassi of ITIA) commented: “Given we sought responses from a range of companies with different levels of engagement with micro-manufacturing, and a range of job roles within those organisations, I think the feedback is extremely encouraging!”

    Summary of the respondents
    Responses were received from nine EU member states, and one from Mexico! A representative cross-section (by size, and organisational role) was secured. 20% of respondents were micro-businesses (10 or less employees); 20% had between 10 and 49 employees; 18% had between 50 and 249 employees; 20% had more than 250 employees; 20% were not representing a company (individuals undertaking personal development or sole traders).

    Training effectiveness
    In response to the question: “Did the platform provide effective training?”

    • 93% stated it was either OK/Very good/Excellent
    • 62% stated it was either Very good/Excellent

    Potential impact/improving company performance
    In response to the question: “Could the training improve company performance?” - 87% of respondents stated they thought their company performance could be improved by using the MiMAN-T resources.
    Overall satisfaction with the training
    : In response to the question: “How satisfied overall are you with the online training?”
    97% of respondents were either “somewhat” or Very” satisfied.

    ITIA completes the semi-final Round of EuRoC Challenge

    ITIA coordinates the Challenger Team PIROS http://www.euroc-project.eu/index.php?id=piros in the highly-competitive contest for winning the Finals of EU Project European Robotics Challenges (EuRoC) http://www.euroc-project.eu/index.php?id=challenge_1

    As Challenge 1 forerunners after the previous Rounds, we completed our final demonstration session earlier last month in Stuttgart (Fraunhofer IPA). We deployed a collaborative robot solution for assisting the manual assembly of machining pallets.
    Our End Users (MCM http://www.mcmspa.it/english/ together with Cembre SpA http://www.cembre.it/group) was actually performing the task, with a real hands-on "touch and feel" experience about the benefits of collaborative robots. With a friendly app, a solid software integration backbone for flexible task programming, a number of core advanced robot control routines, our task was successfully completed by a non-expert user. Last, we do care about safety and are actively exploring the most advanced collaborative modes and new methods for analysing risks.

    What’s next? The next Round (the Finals!) will be a real shopfloor deployment of our robot solution.. coming soon!

    More info? federico.vicentini@itia.cnr.it

    Overview of PIROS Showcase Round application

    Diversity and adaptability of small production batches. Fast setup and reconfiguration. Supervision and augmented role of human operators. Safety. These are the hot keywords in the world of machine tools and shopfloors, where collaborative robots are expected to provide a substantial help to machine operators. Despite a high degree of automation, in fact, machining shopfloors experience a remarkable number of manual operations in pallet and fixtures setup, quality inspection of machined items, handling of raw materials.
    PIROS solution: a collaborative robot unit, including

    • a modular software framework for loading "library tasks",
    • a mobile device app for loading a "playlist" of user-defined tasks,
    • a library of functional routines (force control for enabling collaborative assembly, bin-picking for loading materials, motion planning for optimizing the comfort of operators, perception for gesture recognition, etc),
    • a dynamic model-based risk assessment tool for supporting hazards identification and risk reduction in human-robot interaction (in cooperation with DEEP-SE group in Politecnico di Milano http://deepse.dei.polimi.it/)

    Benefits: operators are free to allocate robot tasks at runtime, while organizing their supervisory tasks among multiple machining tools. End users (machining and assembly shopfloors) can experience a competitive advantage in allowing added-value time to operators, improving ergonomics, prevent the saturation of operators’ tasks.
