Last 5 July, the EU-funded SHERLOCK project hosted its first online workshop, “Fostering seamless and safe human-robot collaboration in manufacturing”.
Industrial robots and automation in modern manufacturing industries have increased significantly in the past decades. More recently, the global pandemic and digital revolution have fundamentally transformed the way industries are performing. However, low digital integration and separated human-robot collaboration prevent enterprises from becoming factories of the future.
SHERLOCK develops innovative robotic applications to address manufacturers’ needs and bridge the gap between humans and robots so that they can coexist more effectively and safely.
The webinar, free and open to everyone, aimed at presenting SHERLOCK human-robot technologies in novel production systems that facilitate active collaboration in the same shared workspace. Our four panelists, representing different members of the consortium, unveiled the technical results achieved over the past four years and discuss the game-changing contributions of the SHERLOCK project to the new era of industry automation.
