REQUEST from Czech Republic, reference: RDCZ20160622001, valid from 24-06-2016 untill 24-06-2017

Research & Development
  • Start date:
    24 juni 2016
  • End date:
    24 juni 2017
  • Summary:
    A Czech high-tech company with 10 years experience in computer vision and intelligent systems field has an ambition to develop dexterous manipulation system e.g. intelligent robotic arm with integrated vision system allowing picking various unsorted material from the box. The company is preparing a project for Eurostars programme (deadline on 15/09/2016) and is looking for industrial partner - robot manufacturer.
  • Description:
    Smart factory is the future for all manufacturers. Robots are and will be inseparable part of modern manufacture plant with efficient production. This makes pressure on introducing new advanced technologies and solutions with capability to deal with new and difficult tasks occurred during production. One of the current challenges is to pick up particular objects from the box of unsorted stuff. If there exists a technology able to pick up unsorted objects from the box, it will save manufacturers a lot of money either spent on special line for packing objects in sorted way (supplier side) or spent to sort them later by vibration drives in their own factory. During the project the company aims to strive for advanced intelligent robotic arm with multi-finger robotic hand (to guarantee variety in the manipulated object profile), force feedback and intelligent optical system for identification of objects in the box with high accuracy. Possibility to improve the system intelligence on time by robot´s operator is foreseen. The operator will have possibility to correct robot actions via a very simple communication interface.
    The company is now looking for an industrial robots manufacturer, which will secure hardware for required advanced object position and rotation recognition system.

    Deadline for EoI: 31 July 2016
