Meeting venue: OTIS Factory, Gien, France.
Horizon 2020 project SHERLOCK (Seamless and safe human-centred robotic applications for novel collaborative workplaces) has been started with the kickoff meeting at Otis Elevator Co.factory in Gien. SHERLOCK will introduce the latest safe robotic technologies including high payload collaborative arms, exoskeletons and mobile manipulators in diverse production environments, enhancing them with smart mechatronics and AI based cognition, creating efficient HRC stations that are designed to be safe and guarantee the acceptance and wellbeing of operators. At United Technologies Research CenterIreland and Italy offices, we will be contributing AI based real time task planning and scheduling, shop-floor digital representation, formal methods for online safety assessment and computer vision methods for safety, gesture analysis and training as well as leading piloting studies in elevator cabin assembly at Otis Elevator Co.Gien factory.
