Intuitive programming of a flexible, dexterous robotic co-worker for varying cable manipulation tasks in industrial assembly and quality control

ECHORD++, 2015 – 2016

DexBuddy demonstrated the overall cost reduction potential of using a flexible gripping device in combination with advanced intuitive programming in automotive manufacturing tasks.

We tested the feasibility of easily programmable dexterous robotic co-workers performing highly dexterous tasks in real industrial scenarios – specifically, cable manipulation tasks in manufacturing, bringing together key skills from 4 partners to produce a novel system.
