Robots play important roles in the manufacturing systems of today, but they are far behind humans in terms of adaptability and flexibility. Human-robot collaboration may be the key to success and members of the large EU project SYMBIO-TIC have spent four years of intense research to improve it.
– SYMBIO-TIC is a project where we try to combine the flexibility and adaptability of a human being with the speed, accuracy, controllability and even predictability of a robot, says Lihui Wang, Professor at the KTH Department of Production Engineering, who has coordinated the project.
More information will follow later this spring. Until then, watch the video about the project:
