Complex safety certification hinders collaboration between humans and robots
Humans and robots interact and share work spaces to increase companies’ productivity and spare employees for physical burdens and allows them to focus on non-repetitive tasks instead. However, unless safety regulation becomes easy to access, understand and apply, it can become a barrier to the increased deployment of collaborative robots that industries across many domains demand.
Control the safety of your robot colleagues: COVR opens its second round of applications
The European project COVR, will contribute to increasing the safety of people and robots who share work spaces in production spaces around Europe.
The winners have been found: 21 ideas for safe, collaborative robots to be launched
75 applicants submitted proposals related to safe, collaborative robotics in the first application round of the European project COVR. 21 of these ideas were selected to receive an Award which includes funding of up to € 150,000.
New partnership will break down barriers to robot safety
In a pan-European strategic effort to break down barriers around collaborative robot safety, five Research and Technology Organizations across Europe have teamed up in a new initiative funded by the EU called COVR.
The COVR project has been kicked off
On the 9th and 10th of January the COVR project was initiated at a Kick Off meeting.
