Project summary del proyecto

Commandia provides control techniques for mobile manipulators (robots with industrial robot arms) in order to perform industrial tasks in which soft products have to be handled dexterously. Therefore, human operators do not have to perform repetitive and exhausting manipulation tasks and can focus on intellectual tasks. The project is based on 3 main features:

  • Context-awareness: The robot tracks the deformation of the product to be handled in real-time with precision in order to manipulate it dexterously. 
  • Multi-modality: the project combines different sensors (vision, force-torque, tactile, proximity…) in order to ensure a more adaptable and reactive robot.
  • Collaboration: The robot works with other robots in order to handle bigger objects, perform more complex tasks and collaborate with human operators.

COMMANDIA extends the use of collaborative robots in strategic industries avoiding tasks to be done manually in low-cost labor countries.
