In collaboration with fellow EU-funded projects: HPS, AI-PRISM, ODIN, FELICE, JARVIS and FLUENTLY, we invite you to join us at the “11th Hybrid Production Systems – AI for advancing human-robot collaboration” workshop

The workshop is divided into two main segments, with COGNIMAN contributing to the first section, which concentrates on “AI for advancing human-robot collaboration.” The workshops will include discussions on various research projects, the development of new technologies to meet industrial challenges and interactive panel discussions to foster dialogue between academic and industrial participants.

Dr Nabil Belbachir from NORCE will present COGNIMAN’s cross-disciplinary AI strategies for human-robot collaboration.

After the successful engagement in the ERF2023, we are looking forward to being part of the ERF2024.

If you are interested in the session, don’t miss the ‘Human-robot collaboration and AI- hype or reality? From pilots to best practices’ workshop, which will also take place during the ERF2024 and also includes a contribution from COGNIMAN.

The projects involved, though distinct in their specific aims and objectives, collectively support the development of innovative robotics technologies.

HPS – The Hybrid Production Systems (HPS) cluster consists of over 40 EU-funded projects (FP7, H2020, Horizon Europe) dealing with hybrid production. It promotes knowledge and experience sharing, aiming to define the roadmap for Hybrid Production Systems.

AI-PRISM –The AI-PRISM project will develop a human-centred AI-based solutions ecosystem for manufacturing scenarios, enhancing human-robot cooperation, efficiency, and working conditions while requiring much less expertise. Additionally, it aims to improve workplace efficiency through flexible production processes incorporating robotics, AI, and social sciences and humanities. 

ODIN – ODIN is a research project exploring technologies in collaborative and autonomous robotics, AI-driven task planning, mobile robots, digital twins, and integration and communication architectures. It aims to assess the feasibility, efficiency, and sustainability of advanced robotics for production environments, aiming to influence EU production companies’ adoption strategies.

FELICE – FELICE unites multidisciplinary research in collaborative robotics, AI, computer vision, IoT, machine learning, data analytics, cyber-physical systems, process optimisation and ergonomics to deliver a modular platform that integrates and harmonises an array of autonomous and cognitive technologies. It aims to increase the agility and productivity of manual assembly production systems, ensure safety and improve the physical and mental well-being of factory workers who are collaborating with mobile robots and working at adaptive workstations. 

JARVIS – JARVIS will develop and validate three AI-driven digital assistant solutions – airborne, air traffic control and airport – addressing critical challenges in aviation’s transition towards automation while prioritising safety and operational and cost efficiencies. Specifically, this AI-powered innovation aims to boost automation in the flight deck. It will also transform control towers and increase automation in airports to boost intrusion detection.

FLUENTLY – Fluently advances AI for human-machine collaboration in dynamic manufacturing settings, featuring the Smart Interface for seamless communication and adaptation, and the Robo-Gym for interactive training. It aims to enhance efficiency and wellbeing, with its impact demonstrated across diverse automation and complexity levels in three pilot projects.

CONVERGING – CONVERGING aims to Develop, deploy, validate and promote smart and reconfigurable production systems including multiple autonomous agents (collaborative robots, AGVs, humans) that can act in diverse production environments.

The European Robotics Forum (ERF) is the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe, spanning academia, industry and society. It aims to foster communication and knowledge transfer and covers technology, applications and the impact of robotics. The ERF provides a podium to discuss recent and future advances in robotics in the context of applications, societal impact, ethical and legal considerations.

Research on the applications of Robotics and AI to the industrial scenario is leading to a very fast-growing innovation in Europe. Thus, it is more and more important to foster the discussion between researchers and industry to create a synergy that will drive the future of research and industrial innovation.

ERF2024 introduces an industrial scientific track for strengthening the scientific component of ERF. Industrial scientific sessions will present the latest results about advanced industrial applications of modern robotics.
