Robotics-enabled logistics and assistive services for the transformable factory of the future

Project description


Smart Factories: ICT for agile and environmentally friendly manufacturing
Obtaining transformable production by developing new assistive automation and mobile robots
Today’s automation and logistics make it difficult, time consuming, and costly to change the type of the product manufactured and to scale the production up and down in response to market volatility. With the increasing market uncertainties, it becomes more and more difficult to justify new automation lines. To keep production in Europe instead of shifting it to low-wage countries, TAPAS will break new ground in robot-based automation and logistics as the backbone of a transformable factory of the future, enabling an economic production regardless of changes in volumes and product type.
