InBot and DIL

Advanced Robotic Technology for Handling Soft Materials in Manufacturing Sectors

At the Italian Institute of Technology, two groups are working on the SoftManBot project, namely Industrial Robotics Facility (InBot) and Dynamic Interaction Lab (DIL). DIL is currently working on the human-robot interaction, while InBot is working on the development of a prototype aiming to automate the sewing process of cyclists garment in collaboration with Decathlon_Italia.

One of the latest advancements from InBot is the development of a vision-based system for the identification of wrinkles in a fabric, and their consequent removal via a robotic gripper equipped with soft fingers.
