CTAG, together with the Galician SME PROBOTEC, expert in industrial automation, has received funding from the European project “ZDMP-Zero Defects Manufacturing Platform” for the development of the CELL-OS project between January and October 2022.
CELL-OS aims to transfer the concept of factory operating system to autonomous robotic cells, designed for Welding, Bin picking and Palletizing purposes to be integrated in manufacturing lines. Current robotic cells are designed for very specific tasks, and their communication with the manufacturing line is usually very limited. However, robotic cells have a great potential to provide more connectivity, interoperability and intelligence to the factory.
CELL-OS main objective is to allow the final users of robotic cells to have additional features, oriented to AI and analytics to perform predictive maintenance and quality prediction, so the overall cell performance can be assessed in real-time. This will help to provide near zero-defect manufacturing robotic cells, with maximum reliability for high-demand environments. CELL-OS will provide new functionalities and connectivity-interoperability potential to PROBOTEC robotic cells, to make them more attractive and with higher added value.
This project has received cascade funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 825631.
