HORSE has progressed with its pilot scenarios’ definition!

The scenarios for the pilot interventions at the pilot factories in HORSE have been defined. The pilots have selected challenging problems that need advanced collaborative robotic technologies to be remotely operated by manufacturing process management tools, which remained unsolvable with existing robotics. Safety is increased by the integration of monitoring and alerting features based on sensors at the level of the robot, the environment (cell) and the production control software.


LASHARE new LEAs launched (PU)

LASHARE successfully entered into its second phase of operation. Fourteen laser-based equipment assessments (LEAs) were conducted within the first phase. Equipment that was demonstrated at lab scale has been advanced in technology readiness level by executing a four stage assessment. An overview about the activities has also been fed to a LASHARE youtube channel showcasing the manufacturing challenges that were addressed.
