Robotic Assistant

Key problem

Despite the increasing level of automations, manual work is still preferable when production demands high flexibility or to tailor ad hoc solutions for small production batches. In such contexts the human worker experience and skills are fundamental, but this may lead to unnecessary physical workloads.

Our objective

In this use case we aim at investigating the feasibility of employing cobots to assist and support  human  workers in machining or assembly tasks, providing the required flexibility and managing ergonomics of the human partner.
