Automation and robotics

Currently available industrial automation lacks flexibility because it is designed for high-volume, low-variation processes and is economically unviable for many SMEs.

Assistive robots work collaboratively with humans and each other, to improve sensing, awareness and decision-making capabilities that allow full autonomy and self-learning behaviour.
