The University of Deusto is participating, together with other 16 institutions all over Europe, in a new project financed by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The ACROBA project (AI-Driven Cognitive Robotic Platform for Agile Production environments), coordinated by Bern University of Applied Sciences (Switzerland), has started on 1 January 2021.
The project aims to develop and demonstrate a novel concept of cognitive robotic platforms based on a modular approach able to be smoothly adapted to virtually any industrial scenario applying agile manufacturing principles. The novel industrial platform will be based on the concept of plug-and-produce, featuring a modular and scalable architecture which will allow the connection of robotic systems with enhanced cognitive capabilities to deal with cyber physical systems (CPS) in fast-changing production environments. ACROBA Platform will definitely serve as a cost-effective solution for a wide range of Industrial sectors, both inside the consortium as well as additional industrial sectors that will be addressed in the future. The project approach will be demonstrated by means of five industrial large-scale real pilots. Additionally, the platform will be tested through twelve dedicated Hackathons and two ACROBA On-Site Labs for technology transfer experiments.
