EURECA put the worker needs at the centre of the working scene.
The increase of the productivity as well as the ergonomics improvement are the main goal of the project.
Automation-as-needed is therefore considered as the winning automation strategy for the next aircraft interiors assembly.
Clean Sky is the largest European research programme developing innovative, cutting-edge technology aimed at reducing CO2, gas emissions and noise levels produced by aircraft. Funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme, Clean Sky contributes to strengthening European aero-industry collaboration, global leadership and competitiveness.
CORDIS is the European Commission’s primary public repository and portal to disseminate information on all EU-funded research projects and their results in the broadest sense.
CORDIS is managed by the Publications Office of the European Union, on behalf of the European Commission’s research Directorates-General and Agencies.
Eureca Intranet: The EURECA project framework is dedicated to innovate the assembly of aircraft interiors using advanced human-robot collaborative solutions. A pool of devices/frameworks will be deployed for teaming up with human operators in a human-centred assistive environment. The main benefits are the substantial improvement of ergonomics in workloads, the increase in the usability level of assembly actions, the digitalization of procedures with logs and visuals for error prevention through dedicated devices. Solutions are peculiarly designed for addressing both the working conditions and the management of the cabin-cargo installation process, such as limited maneuvering space, limited weight allowed on the cabin floor, reducing lead time and recurring costs.
