2010-09-15: Industrial collaboration in Experimental Robotics and Flexible Software System
Tid: 2010-09-15 09.00
Plats: LTH, M-huset, IP2 (plan 2 intill robotlabbet)
Speaker: Klas Nilsson
LTH Productive robotics lab interacts with industry locally and globally. Earlier projects like SMErobot has given valuable results, and demonstrated the importance of full-scale experimental verification in close collaboration with industry.
Our robots are now being moved into a new lab in the M-building, where comprehensive and effective activities links LTH departments and forms the basis for a continued close collaboration with ABB Robotics. In the coming months, research results and a new type of robot will be presented as part the Rosetta project (http://www.fp7rosetta.eu), which is coordinated ABB Corporate Research.
Robotic systems are examples of real-time systems for which there is great demand for flexibility (in programming and configurability), making research relevant to several other types of long-term product development.
