New EIT Manufacturing project DeCoTe (Democratizing Cobot Technology) has started

We just started the DeCoTe (Democratizing Cobot Technology) project, which brings fresh wind to the area of robotics. Targeting on people interested in robots as a hobby as well as on professionals looking for a hand-on experience. The 1-day workshop developed during the project will include a program consisting of a combination of interactive desktop learning nuggets and practical tasks to be mastered.

The participants will immerse into the topic of collaborative robotics in a proactive and innovative way and get an introduction into this increasingly relevant technology. With the aim of understanding the basics of this technology and learning about safety aspects. Upon completion, participants will be able to master simple programming tasks and design a basic (industrial) application.

The workshops will be held in (semi-)public facilities (open workshops, design factories, innovation labs, and makerspaces) in RIS (Regional Innovation Scheme) countries all over Europe. At every location, there will be workshops where participants will learn how to use the cobot as a tool for worker assistance for a manufacturing use case. These workshops will consist of four main parts: a) an introduction to cobot’s technology, b) a briefing on the safety aspects, c) an introduction to the cobot’s control and d) a hands-on activity for provided manufacturing problem solution.

We are looking forward to all visitors of the workshops and are confident that they can be physically held in the second half of 2021! The list of dates and locations will be updated on an ongoing basis!

Our project consortium consists of TU Wien, LMS Patras, LINPRA and VGTU and is financed by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT), a body created by the EU.

Let us meet in the closest our workshops!
