Source: Robotiq What’s the future for collaborative robotics? We look at eight trends which will shape the next decade of robotics research. The US Robotics Roadmap — written by universities in the USA — is a report which plots the present and future of robotics. It discusses the breadth of the industry, from health-care to manufacturing. A large part of it looks at future research trends.

For the second consecutive year, FourByThree will host a special session at IEEE’s conference on Emerging Technologies And Factory Automation (ETFA). This year, the conference will take place in Limassol (Cyprus), on September 12-15 2017. FourByThree’s session focuses on safe human-robot collaboration, including currently available technologies, planning and scheduling, verification and dependability, long-term autonomy, as well as the human perspective (trust towards and acceptance of robotics systems). The session aims …Read More
Emerging technology in human robot collaboration (HRC) has transported dreams into reality, particularly in the arena of smart lightweight robots that are transforming the lives of individuals with mobility issues, and improving the quality of daily work in many application scenario. Direct, physical interaction between a human and a robot has potential to provide assistance (as well as rehabilitation) which can extend the human user’s physical capabilities. FourByThree represents a …Read More
The European project FourByThree kicks off today, December 1st 2014. It is an alliance made up of 15 European partners who will design, build and test pioneering robotic solutions able to collaborate safely and efficiently with human operators in industrial manufacturing companies. The project, which will last for 36 months, has a total budget of 6.9 million euros and is partly funded by the EU within the European Framework Programme …Read More
