Researchers and representatives from all the organisations participating in the ROSSINI project attended the 2nd General Assembly which was organized by Pilz Automation Company.
The progress achieved in the different work-packages was assessed and discussed in several presentations conducted by the respective ROSSINI work-packages leaders. Participants shared the faced challenges as well as the related findings during the previous months of the project.
Traditionally, industrial robots must be confined in restricted areas away from humans, in order to avoid contact and accidents. Project partner IRIS, an advanced engineering & technology SME, specifically focuses on the “perception layer” of the platform, which receives a data stream from a diversity of different sensor types (the “sensor layer”), and from this data identifies where the key objects are (humans, robot, products and components being assembled) and what they are doing.
