Roboception’s products are vital components of the innovative solutions our customers and partners develop – among them are:
Roboception is actively engaged in research and innovation, cooperates with Universities and
Research Institutions and – as a part of SPARC – is involved in strengthening the robotic competences across Europe. In addition to actively coordinating the Topic Group “Perception” within SPARC, Roboception is involved in publicly funded projects on national (BFS, BMWi, BMBF) and European level.
[01/2023-12/2025] Smarthandle: Manual and automated production lines must evolve to “produce more and diverse with less”, however they need to address shortcomings such as e.g. lack of cognitive perception systems to allow autonomous reasoning. SMARTHANDLE will research technologies to address these needs and support European industry.
[11/2020-04/2025] KI5GRob: KI5GRob addresses in a new way how machine learning can be efficiently used in robotics by tightly linking cloud technologies and robotics in a tight control loop, and how the concept pursued can fundamentally simplify the programming and maintenance of robotic systems.
[03/2021-02/2025] 5gsmartfact: With funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Grant Agreement ID 956670, this project (Future Wireless Connected and Automated Industry Enabled by 5G) is to study, develop, optimize and assess the deployment of 5G networks factory environments and automation applications.
[12/2021-02/2025] KI4HE: The focus of the KI4HE project is on improved environmental perception, self-localization, and assisted remote control of vehicles in hard-to-reach difficult-to-access environments.
[01/2021-12/2024] ODIN: With funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 101017141, the project aims to strengthen the EU production companies’ trust in utilizing advanced robotics by demonstrating that novel robot-based production systems are not only technically feasible but also efficient and sustainable for immediate introduction at the shopfloor.
[01/2020-12/2023] RoMaFo: Supported by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy (StMWi), the consortium is working towards a robotic assistant system and machine vision for the assembly of unstable components in customer-individual products.
[10/2020-09/2023] RobIn4LeMi: Robot-supported interaction systems for performance-impaired employees, funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.
[09/2020-08/2023] KoARob: Robot-based assistance systems or cobots without separating protective equipment are becoming increasingly important in production. For personnel safety during operation, a few special safety-oriented sensors will be used to divide the area around the robot system into different, rough zones. As soon as a person enters a zone, the robot is slowed down or stopped completely. The goal of the project is to develop concepts and coordinated evaluation electronics that make it possible to combine a wide range of sensors, measurement processes and AI methods into a safety-oriented sensor system. The aim is to enable robots to be operated more cost-effectively and efficiently, yet safely in the human workspace.
