In Project Focus
The main goal of the HORSE project is to develop the new generation of flexible, collaborative robot applications for the needs of manufacturing SMEs. This will be supported by the flexible model of a smart factory, involving collaboration with humans, robots, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) and machinery to realize industrial tasks in an efficient manner. New solutions will be tested and introduced by pilot industrial applications in Netherlands, Poland, and Spain. The sustainability of further development of this new generation robot applications and its use in the industry will be supported by the network of competence centers supported by the regional innovation hubs. The development and growth of this network will be initiated and supported by the introduction of four competence centers in France, Germany, Netherlands, and Slovenia. Slovenian Competence Centre – “ROBOFLEX Slovenia” will be organized within TCS-Toolmakers Cluster of Slovenia, supported by LENS Living Lab – INTESO Group as coordinator of the regional open research and innovation collaboration platform for robotics and in cooperation with ETRA Ltd. as operator of the Demonstration Center. This project also includes Open calls for application experiments for interested SMEs. This call will be available in autumn 2017.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No 680734
