Discussing collaborative human-robot applications @the 8th CIRP CATS
SHERLOCK had the great opportunity to give three keynote speeches during the 8th CIRP Conference on Assembly Technology and Systems on “Digitalizing Smart Factories”, which took place from the 29 of September to the 1 of October 2020.
On the 1st day, SHERLOCK partners held a keynote speech on “Seamless human-robot interaction”; directly jumping into the topic of novel industrial collaborative robots. New scenarios emerge and evolve where physical barriers no longer separate industrial robots from the human operator.
On the 2nd day, SHERLOCK partners gave a keynote speech on “Advanced soft robotics technologies and smart mechatronics” highlighting how the digital transformation of products and production related to the Industry 4.0 revolution pushes manufacturers to rethink their assembly systems and processes.
Finally, on the 3rd day of the conference, SHERLOCK partners presented one last keynote speech on “Safety and security in collaborative workspaces” raising a crucial aspect: the central place occupied by the human operator.
