INTELLIGENT INTERACTIVE COWORKER FOR THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE
The Robot Companion is a demonstrator of intelligent interactive robotics focusing on industrial assembly tasks (for example the assembly of a representative gear unit). The system is composed of two collaborative robots, custom end-effectors, vision sensors, and a digital twin of the whole platform. In nominal mode, the robots work autonomously and assemble the different parts using dedicated skills. An interactive mode is also available, allowing a human operator to collaborate with the robots. An environment camera allows monitoring the operator’s actions and adapt accordingly.
