Human factory

Exoskeletons and collaborative and intelligent robotics

We work on the integration of humans and machines in the factory of the future.

The use of IoT devices helps to perform tasks more efficiently:

  • We study the use of cognitive assistance systems to improve the information flow and help to reduce human error.
  • We analyze how the incorporation of physical assistance systems (exoskeletons) helps to perform the most physical jobs, reducing fatigue and improving the health of workers.
Soft robotics
Cognitive assistance

We have experience in the evaluation of exoskeletons in different industries (automotive, stone, naval, electronics, etc.) and in research projects at European level, such as CO-GUIDING, TRAINMAN-MAGOS or QUALIS.

CTAG is a member of the Get2excel network, the most relevant exoskeleton research cluster worldwide.

InteX is a project capable of objectively assessing the impact of exoskeletons in the work environment thanks to new technologies based on Artificial Intelligence, improving productivity in physically demanding work processes.

This assessment is done through performance indicators that simulate metabolic cost, cardiovascular strain and muscle fatigue, allowing manufacturers to estimate the performance of these exoskeletons.

SELFEX: Self-training using extended reality wearable technology

SELFEX offers a new approach aimed at improving training processes in manufacturing industries.

Through the use of tracking systems such as gloves and XR devices, the project enables a self-training procedure that provides a measurable degree of operator readiness to execute the work on a production line. This new approach can be applied in many industrial fields, especially in tasks that require greater human dexterity.
