Chiara Zocchi from CiaoTech, leader of project dissemination and exploitation activities, gave a presentation on the impressive results reached in the A4BLUE beta use cases where the A4BLUE solutions and system are being testing and validating. The solutions developed will support workers in their assembly tasks by performing the hardest operations …Read More

A method for planning human robot shared tasks

Source: ScienceDirect A method for planning human robot shared tasks A multi criteria method, in support of the planning of shared human robot assembly tasks is presented in this paper. CAD models are used for the extraction of a product’s assembly sequence, whilst an algorithm is applied for the generation and examination of alternative assignment scenarios. The design algorithm performs the joint planning of task-to-resource assignment and cell layout at …Read More

ACE Factories Cluster: newsletter #2 now available!

ACE Factories: humAn CEntred Factories Cluster is a networking Cluster of five FoF-4 projects funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme – A4BLUE, Factory2Fit, HUMAN, INCLUSIVE, and MANUWORK. Those projects are developing solutions for manufacturing work environments that adapt to each individual worker. By combining their efforts, the projects hope to achieve greater impact and wider adoption of these new developments in advanced manufacturing systems. Want to know more about the …Read More

A problem-solving ontology for human-centered cyber physical production systems

Source: ScienceDirect A problem-solving ontology for human-centered cyber physical production systems Cyber physical social systems (CPSS) tend to integrate computation with physical processes as well as human and social characteristics. The fusion of cyber, physical, and socio spaces through Industry 4.0 emerges a new type of production systems known as cyber physical production systems (CPPS). CPPS enriches communications among cyber-physical-socio space in the production environment. Utilizing human-centered CPPS in smart …Read More

CESA use case goes on

The A4BLUE solutions are being tested and validated in four use case scenarios. They consist of two real industrial scenarios, at Airbus in France and CESA in Spain, and two laboratory-based scenarios, at IK4-TEKNIKER in Spain and RWTH Aachen University in Germany. Within the CESA use case scenario, A4BLUE introduces the first collaborative automation in their assembly facilities which will reduce the high dependency on manual work within CESA and …Read More
