SHERLOCK shared project technical results at its first webinar last July

Last July, the consortium behind the SHERLOCK Project (an EU-funded Horizon 2020 initiative on seamless and safe human-centred robotic applications for novel collaborative workplaces) successfully organised an event where the technical results of the project were publicly disclosed.

For the past four years, the experts in the consortium have conducted extensive research on specific technologies and modules – namely Work Packages – supporting the ultimate application of the project: four industrial pilot cases to be implemented by end-users in production workspaces.

The partnership’s goal is thus to address manufacturers’ needs and facilitate interaction between humans and robots so that they can coexist more effectively and safely, keeping high productivity levels without compromising operators’ well-being.

The virtual workshop, held on 5 July, brought together SHERLOCK partners, researchers, SMEs representatives and industry members to learn more about the project’s technical results before its official finalisation next October. The four panelists, representing COMAU, Fraunhofer IPK, LMS (Laboratory for Manufacturing Systems) and PILZ, presented the crucial contributions of SHERLOCK to the next generation of automation solutions for manufacturing.
