Integration Camp and Plenary Meeting

Last week, IK4-TEKNIKER hosted an Integration Camp and Plenary Meeting of the FourByThree consortium. During the Integration Camp the main components developed in the project by different partners were tested and integrated. These include the new actuators (DFKI) and arm design (ZeMA), overall architecture (IK4-TEKNIKER), dynamic calibration (CNR-ITIA), low and medium level control (CNR-ITIA),  programming language (IK4-TEKNIKER), dynamic task planning (CNR-ISTC), impedance control (CNR-ITIA), new functionalities of the projection system …Read More

FourByThree collaborative robot almost ready

After the three initial prototypes, the first FourByThree robotic arm that will be used in the development of one of the four industrial cases is ready for deployment. In the coming weeks, the additional three will be available too. The arm has been mounted in ZEMA and it is now at DFKI for final tuning. The robot will then be sent to Eibar where there will be an Integration Camp …Read More
