The European Robotics Initiative for Strengthening the Competitiveness of SMEs in Manufacturing by integrating aspects of cognitive systems

Objective

SME-suitable robots that assist in managing uncertainty by symbiotic Human-Robot-Interaction and embedded cognition
Over two-thirds of European workers in manufacturing are employed in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). While robots are able to carry out repetitive tasks to a high standard, they do not meet the demands of SMEs for high flexibility. Cognitive abilities should be included in the equipment and cognition should take place in both the robot and the human. SMErobotics propose a new work system, in which humans and robots can together deal with SME manufacturing uncertainties and are symbiotically able to learn from each other and to learn from the past handling of uncertainties. The SMErobotics vision is to deploy such robots on SME shop floors, with the benefit of long-term improvements in productivity.
