The European Robotics Initiative for
Strengthening the Competitiveness of
SMEs in Manufacturing is set to bring
cognitive robotics from vision to reality
in a key segment of EU-manufacturing.
|We aim to create SME-suitable robots||→||a work system based on the
SME needs and challenges
|that assist in managing uncertainty
||→||adaptation of ’known unknowns’,
learning, inference, etc.
|by symbiotic Human-Robot-Interaction
||→||mixed initiative interaction evolving
based on resulting knowledge
|(HRI) and embedded cognition
||→||reasoning embedded in equipment,
based on explicit knowledge
|going beyond flexibility||→||cognition for robustness
without explicit engineering
|by semantic integration.
||→||exploitation and enhancement of
data/meaning along the IT-chain
