Proactive diagnosis and conception of collaborative robot deployment in small and medium-sized enterprises

BMBF, 2019 – 2022

Collaborative robots (cobots) have been identified as a highly promising tool to address both the increasing innovation pressure and skilled labor shortage small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are facing today. The goal of ProBot is to develop a virtual, integrated toolbox to aid SMEs in the conception and deployment of cobot solutions. The toolbox comprises an online platform which provides interactive tools and guides to assist SMEs in the planning and layouting of collaborative robot cells and the selection of cobot hardware suitable for the intended use cases. ArtiMinds focuses on the development of cobot skills tailored to collaborative surface treatment (grinding, powder coating) and machine tending.
