Smart robotics for high added value footwear industry

Project description

Smart Factories: ICT for agile and environmentally friendly manufacturing Robots improving the shoe production processes Footwear production is still mainly handcrafted. Currently, opposite to other manufacturing sectors like automotive, food or metal processing, robots are still uncommon in the footwear industry. The introduction of robotics will contribute to overcome the complexity in the automation of the processes of this industry that accounts for some of the shortest production runs to be found. ROBOFOOT will research and develop: new manipulation strategies and devices for non-rigid parts that allowed grasping, handling and packaging of shoes without damaging them; sensor based robot programming and controlling tools, in particular visual sensors as the base for visual servoing; re-design of some shoe production processes to allow robot assisted manufacturing and assembly.
