  1. 1. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 EuRoC in a Nutshell Fabrizio Caccavale CREATE/ UNIBAS info@robotics-challenges.eu
  2. 2. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 2 What is EuRoC about? Motivation ● The European manufacturing industry needs competitive solutions to keep global leadership in products and services ● Collaboration and cross-fertilization between industrial and research community should be strengthened  synergies across these will speed up the process of bringing innovative technologies from research labs to industrial end-users ● EuRoC wants to act as an enabler in this context ● Challenges: innovation drivers, as they share the strive for questioning the status quo ● Robotics competitions: potential for fostering research and development, as well as supporting academia-industry tech transfer Concept ● Three industry-relevant challenges launched in April 2014 with open calls for Challengers, Technology Developers, System Integrators and End Users ● Each of the challenges is divided into three stages of increasing complexity ● The project will end with one EuRoC winner team
  3. 3. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 3 Who is part of EuRoC? ● Core Consortium — Research organizations, technology providers and systems integrators providing: management and organization of challenges, hosting robotic platforms, tools and support ● Research Teams — Research Organizations ● End Users — Manufacturing companies providing use cases to the Challenger Teams ● Technology Developers — Companies or research organizations developing innovative technologies and looking for an application of their technology in the industrial robotics domain ● System Integrators — Companies that specialize in either bringing together robotic components/subsystems or developing and commissioning whole robotic systems (only for Challenge 1) Challenger Teams
  4. 4. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 4 Targets ● Strengthen competitiveness of European robotics industry in production, logistics and servicing ● Pave the way for introducing new robot solutions in different manufacturing applications (emerging markets appealing for SMEs)
  5. 5. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 5 EuRoC Challenges Reconfigurable Interactive Manufacturing Cell Shop Floor Logistics and Manipulation Plant Inspection and Servicing ● Each challenge involves whole manufacturing supply chains within their field, while favouring technology transfer from academia to industry ● Registered Challengers had to solve a set of benchmarking exercises in the form of a Simulation Contest during Stage I: Qualifying ● Selected Challengers then team up with partners from the industry and share existing resources at three top European platforms in Stage II: Realistic Labs ● In Stage III: Field Tests, Challenger teams must ensure sustainability and adaptability to end users
  6. 6. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 6 Challenge Chart 30 39 34 € 7 M grant money available to Challengers
  7. 7. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 7 Challenge Timeline ● Three challenges articulated in three stages ● QUALIFYING ● REALISTIC LABS ● FIELD TESTS ● Duration: 48 months
  8. 8. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 8 Core Consortium Germany France United Kingdom Switzerland Italy
  9. 9. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 9 Challengers
  10. 10. Industrial Technologies 2016 • Amsterdam • 24 June 2016 10 Project Lures 1. Cumulative sum of € 7 M grant money available to the Challengers ● 9 Teams will receive up to € 375 K each in the two stages ● 6 Teams will receive up to € 585 K each in the three stages 2. Added value of the challenge experiments ● Benchmark new algorithms on three first-class European hosting platforms ● End users, technology developers and system integrators on board from start ● Open access to platforms ● Full support from local hosts and end users ● Test algorithms at end-user site in the final stage ● Financial support available to cover personnel and travel/lodge costs 3. Formation of Challenger Teams ● Gain business experience ● Great networking opportunities
