CTAG obtains promising results in the CO-GUIDING project

COVR projectCTAG has achieved the first milestone within the CO-GUIDING project. This project has been funded by COVR (H2020, GA No. 779966) in its first open call to perform a risk analysis in the automotive use case called “Safety in Collaborative Assisted Guiding of Automotive Door Assembly System [CDAS]”. It is an operation in which the robot takes care of the weight and accuracy of the door assembly, while the operator handles the complex trajectories and the finished quality.

CTAG has proposed a safety evaluation criterion that can help to validate the safety requirements (in three parameters: force and power, load and movement speed) with the specifications of the proposed use case. The tests have focused on three main factors: the safety of the operator, that of the process and, finally, the verification of the work environment safety to perform the task.

CTAG will continue to develop this project throughout 2020, when the final results will be published. The key objective is the rigorous test (similar to real manufacturing) to validate safety requirements and technical specifications (operator strength, speed and range of movement, work space and trajectories of the robot process).

CTAG goes a step further in collaborative systems

CTAG, through the CO-GUIDING Project, will perform the risk assessment implementing ISO12100 and will base the risk estimation on rigorous tests in a simulated (almost real) environment. In addition, it will validate the main safety skills adopted as a risk reduction measure, contributing to a safety protocol and a new test method.

CO-GUIDING is a new technical challenge for CTAG. The goal of CO-GUIDING is to improve safety in the assisted guiding of the collaborative door assembly system (CDAS), while an operator handles the complex trajectories and the quality of the finish and the robot handles the weight and accuracy of the door.

The project, which started on July 15, 2019, will last for nine months and will have the technical assistance of the CEA interactive robotics laboratory.
