Exhibit No. 3: A humanlike approach

Assembling with a dual arm robot

This robot system is focused on assembling tasks executed by the novel Comau Smart dual arm robot. An innovative humanlike approach is used: sensor based platform and cognitive functions support the assembling process as well as the cooperation between human and robot in the different phases of each task, permitting ease of use also in a SME.

Use case

  • The shown application displays a gear box assembly
  • Use of robust industrial hardware used in an easy and not specialised way
  • Simulation of real SME application and environment

Technological innovations

  • Smart Dual Arm with C5G open controller
  • Sensor-fusion data for complex assembling tasks
  • Fenceless approach by, the use of safety sensors
  • Human-robot interaction for intuitive process definition, based on models of manufacturing process and sensor data
  • Multifunctional equipment on board robot (Tool changer, grippers, nutrunner)
  • Cognitive features implemented such as skill engines, easy interactive GUI, exception handling, human robot
    interaction

Benefits

  • Reduction of the system integration time by 40% respect to standard approach
  • Reduction of error recovery by 30% trough embedded cognitive competences
  • Cost reduction with fixtures approach (20% less)
  • Adaptation to a wide range of applications
  • Flexibility of the multi arm system (dual or single arm use)
  • Easy and intuitive programming
