New safety standards allow people to work next to robots, but require that they be protected from harm while they do so. Sensors that detect and track people are a natural way of implementing the …Read More

FourByThree workshop at Technishow 2016 (Netherlands)

FourByThree will attend Technishow 2016, which will be held in Utrecht, Netherlands, on March 15-18 2016. Project partner STODT, in collaboration with IK4-TEKNIKER, is leading the effort to prepare a stand where attendants will have the opportunity to work with a robot in a collaborative way. These demonstrations will provide our researchers with relevant information on the user experience. For the experiment, we will use a table, a collaborative robot …Read More
