Advanced Robotic Technology for Handling Soft Materials in Manufacturing Sectors

HORIZON 2020 Project - Transforming European Industry


We are developing an innovative and universal approach for handling deformable and flexible materials for the industry.

We are integrating advanced manufacturing technologies for the automation of contact-based tasks, using a smart robotic perception system, a multi-sensor planning and control platform, and intelligent and universally dexterous grippers.
