The Project and Robot
European Robotics Challenge (EuRoC, EU FP7) aims at sharpening the focus of European manufacturing through a number of application experiments, while adopting an innovative approach which ensures comparative performance evaluation. In the framework of EuRoC, three industry-relevant challenges are launched:
- Reconfigurable Interactive Manufacturing Cell
- Shop Floor Logistics and Manipulation
- Plant Servicing and Inspection
The IIT AutoMAP team, with members from APRIL lab, participated the challenge "Shop Floor Logistics and Manipulation".The main goal of this challenge is to boost mobile manipulation with torque controlled robots towards industrial maturity and thus enable entirely new applications and markets, such as robots acting autonomously in unstructured environments and together with humans. The picture adapted from the EuRoC official website demonstrates this concept.
