KUKA Innovation Award 2017

The MACHAMP team of ITIA-CNR (Manupulator Assistive Control for Human Amplification in Mounting Procedures) is one of the 5 finalists of the Kuka Innovation Award at the Hannover Messe.

With its project, the team from the Italian Istituto Di Tecnologie Industriali E Automazione is seeking a human-robot collaboration solution for the assembly of heavy parts in the aerospace industry. Advanced guidance control schemas are developed, together with virtual features to guide the assembly execution. First and foremost, the goal is to relieve production employees of physically strenuous work.

The proposed application is closely related with the EURECA project.
