The largest international symposium on wearable robotics will be held in Vigo in 2020 with the collaboration of CTAG

In recent years, wearable robotics has emerged as a new topic of interest, closely related to physical assistance, exoskeletons, and soft robotics.

CTAG has been really involved in this field since its inception, developing projects related to the industry and the manufacturing processes for health prevention and ergonomics. The Centre has experience in projects for the automotive and naval sectors and participates in European initiatives such as EUROBENCH or COVR. Therefore, CTAG collaborates in the organization of the 5th International Symposium on Wearable Robotics, WeRob 2020, which will be held in Vigo, Spain, from October 13 to 16, 2020. The Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC, Spanish National Research Council) and the Shirley Ryan Abilitylab also participate in the organization of the event.

WeRob will be held in parallel with the ICNR (International Conference on Neurorehabilitation), which will bring together researchers, experts, manufacturers and end users to present the latest scientific and technological advances related to robotics and neuroscience, as well as their application in the medical and industrial fields.

In addition to scientific presentations by international experts, WeRob and ICNR will be accompanied by industrial demonstrations and an exhibition area, among other activities.

CTAG will evaluate the current technology of industrial exoskeletons within the framework of the EUROBENCH project

TestEd, operación con exoesqueletos en el Process Lab 4.0 de CTAGThe EUROBENCH European project will finance TestEd – Benchmark for Benchmarking Industrial Exoskeleton Technology: Testbed and Software routine development for a scenario “Moving in Narrow Space”. This project, led by CTAG’s Processes and FoF Department, proposes the development of a reconfigurable testbed and methodology based on the local and global performance metrics of industrial exoskeletons. We aim to link these metrics with the main stakeholder goals and objectives in order to facilitate seamless and cost-effective implementation of industrial exoskeleton technology.

In short, TestEd aims to reduce the testing time by 30% from the selection phase to the implementation phase of an industrial exoskeleton by designing a testbed and software routines for “Moving in Narrow Spaces”.

Unión Europea“This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, via an Open Call issued and executed under Project EUROBENCH (grant agreement No 779963)”
