Self-reconfiguration of a robotic workcell for the recycling of electronic waste

Project description

Making a flexible fleet of factory robots

The industrial robotics market in Europe is growing. Robots in factories are taking on more and more tasks, from spot welding to assembly line processes and polishing. However, any change in product or process requires restructuring of hardware and software, which can be costly. In this context, the EU funded ReconCycle project will develop the concept of robotic self-reconfiguration. The focus will be on the electronic waste recycling domain, which continues to be dominated by manual labour. In order to identify electronics with different states of damage, the robot must be self-reconfigurable. The project will introduce the much-increased level of automation that results in a high long-term impact on both industry and society.
