SHERLOCK Final Event - Industrial applications of novel Human-Robot Collaboration paradigm


28 Oct 2022 09:00 to 13:15


VDL Industrial Modules
Helmond, Netherlands
  Hybrid Event

Event Description

The EU-funded SHERLOCK project aspires to develop flexible, safe human-centred robotic applications for new collaborative workplaces. The project introduces novel robotics technologies -high and low payload collaborative robots, exoskeletons,mobile dual-arm robots- enhanced with smart mechatronics and AI-based cognition to augment human capabilities. The novel SHERLOCK shop floor ensures operators’ safety, acceptance, and well-being.

Join us on October 28 to learn about the novel human-robot collaborative technologies developed within SHERLOCK, driven by the requirements of the European Industry. We will be live from VDL Industrial Modules factory!

The workshop will show four integrated production stations, in four industrial demonstrators derived from the renewable energy, industrial modules assembly, machine building and aeronautics sectors. The workshop will conclude with key findings related to performance, phycological impact and acceptance of the solution, as an outcome of on-site evaluation activities.
