FourByThree proposes the development of a new generation of modular industrial robotic solutions that are suitable for efficient task execution in collaboration with humans in a safe way and are easy to use and program by the factory workers.
The project was active for three years, December 2014-2017.
Last Thursday, November 30th, the FourByThree consortium as well as its project officer and technical advisor gathered at IK4-TEKNIKER’s facilities for the final review meeting. During the meeting, all project results were reported and pilot scenarios were presented through videos and live demonstrations.
To mark the completion of the FourByThree project, Queen Mary University London organised an event entitled “Next Generation Robots for the Factory of the Future” that attracted an audience of 100 participants and took place in the Royal Society, London on the 17th of November. Read more

MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab has devised a method by which robots can understand and respond to voice commands, stated in clear, plain language. The system is advanced enough to understand contextual commands, too, including references made to previously mentioned commands and objects. Read more
