Open Calls

Call for proposals for ReconCell

ReconCell Objectives
The ReconCell project aims at designing and implementing a new kind of an autonomous robot workcell, which will be attractive not only for large production lines but also for few-of- a-kind production, which often takes place in SMEs. The ReconCell project proposes to develop a flexible robotic workcell that will allow very short, self-adaptable and affordable changeovers under the conditions demanded and based on end-user needs. This will be achieved with the minimum use of additional resources over the system’s lifetime.

Call Details
