The setup consists of several robotic arms (Staubli TX0 and TX90, 4X ABB IRB 120, KUKA LRB iiwa), end effectors (including human-robot interaction safe R800 gripper) and a mock-up of a collaborative manufacturing cell equipped with a tactile SAPARO floor. The environment can be easily configured to represent different variations of the manufacturing and robot manipulation scenarios involving both industrial robots and human operators. This installation is particularly useful for research on human-robot cooperation, multi-robot object manipulation, human tracking and detection for ensuring safety, etc. It provides unique opportunities to perform research in manipulative and collaborative robotics with bleeding edge robotic sensors (e.g. the SAPARO floor), and several different manipulators, including the human-safe ones (e.g. KUKA iiwa). As such, it is attractive not only for the research community but also for the industry (especially in the SME segment) which require innovative robotic solutions that are both flexible and safe for humans.
Dear TERRINet applicants and future users,
we sincerely hope that you are staying safe in these challenging times that we are facing at the moment. The current emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic has deeply changed our lives. The recent and progressive lock-down forced us to reorganize our working routines in smart working modalities and to shut down the TERRINet infrastructures. Therefore, we regret to inform you that Trans-National Access has been suspended until further notice.
However, we would like to reassure you that we will keep evaluating the proposals submitted for Trans-National Access regularly. Indeed, despite access cannot be allowed for a while, the selected users will be queued and access will take over gradually as soon as the situation will allow it. We also inform you that a special application mechanism has been settled in TERRINet to mitigate the delays that will occur due to the COVID-19.
The Open Call no. 4 is currently open: we are accepting proposals under the new mechanism called "first come, first served". Proposals are directly forwarded to the evaluation panel as soon as they are submitted. Proposals submitted closer to the deadline will be dispatched after that. The deadline for the Open Call n.4 will be on May 31, 2020.
Do not hesitate! Get this unique opportunity to be granted with fully-covered access (including travel and accommodation costs) to 15 leading European robotics labs and 100+ best robotic platforms and to get in touch with leading robotic experts.
For any additional questions, please, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let's take this time of the world calming down to plan our future.
