The potential of industrial application of lightweight robots is not fully exploited. The reasons are typically a lack of expertise and skepticism (mistrust) about the safety concepts. The DeCoTe consortium aims to increase the acceptance of collaborative robotics among potential users and the interested public. For this purpose, practical experience with industrial applications as well as basic safety concepts are to be provided.
DeCoTe uses an innovative learning concept consisting of a proactive workshop and interactive learning units on the computer (tablet) to teach the basics of collaborative robotics in an industrial context. The 1-day program, which will be held in different countries of the EIT RIS region in autumn and winter 2021, will take place in regional fablabs, makerspaces and universities.
