PICK-PLACE focuses on flexible, safe and dependable robotic part-handling in industrial environments. The project proposes a combination of human and robot capabilities in order to achieve this efficient hybrid pick-and-place / pick-and-package solution. It includes dynamic package configuration, flexible grasping strategies using an innovative multifunctional gripper, robust environment perception and mechanisms and strategies for human-robot collaboration.
In the past weeks, a new section has been incorporated to PICK-PLACE project’s website, the “Forum” section, which gives access to an online survey.
As explained in the Challenge and objectives section, the idea behind PICK-PLACE emerged from the lack of available solutions that answer the industry’s need to manipulate parts with high variability (in terms of size, shape or weight) or to do so in less structured environments. Read more
Last week, members of the PICK-PLACE consortium gathered for a mid-proyect review meeting at the European Forum in Luxemburg. The meeting was attended by all partners (ULMA Handling Systems, IK4-TEKNIKER, Mondragon Assembly, CNR-STIIMA, Fraunhofer-IFF and TOFAS) as well as by project officer Irene Sardellitti and expert Norbert Kruger.
