Revolutionize the way industrial robots learn to cooperate with human workers for performing assembly tasks.


Equip robots with collaborative skills, using deep reinforcement learning algorithms and safety strategies.


14 partners form the CoLLaboratE project, including universities, research institutes, SMEs and industries.


The excpected impact is to improve efficiency and flexibility by automatic assembly systems capable to rapidly learn new tasks


Increase in job quality index


Reduction in programming time/cost


Reduction in reconfiguration time/cost

In Romaero use case the robot can work collaboratively with a human technician. This way, percussive riveting becomes a semiautomated process. The system is flexible. It can change position and height, thus being usable for a variety of structures, different in size and shape.

In @KOLEKTOR_group the innovative technologies integrated into the work cell are: human intention recognition, dynamic task sharing, assembly of objects with low tolerances supported, automatic cell adaptation.

In @ArcelikGlobal use case the focus was on electronic card (PCB) assembly. The robot takes the PCB from the box and places the card in its place on the TV, then the operator screws the cards in place. This new collaborative cell presents good improvements in ergonomics.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 820767.
