The Industrial Robotics Project
The human-robot collaborative system takes advantage of the strengths of humans (cognitive capability) and robotic systems (repeatability and high precision). The program aims to enhance the current capability of robotic systems by improving its degree of autonomy, so that more appropriate tasks can be delegated to the robotic system. The ultimate aim is for the human to do as little as possible (e.g., push a button to start the system), towards increasing level of autonomy.
The program achieves this through 8 work packages, where the 1st 5 work packages focus on fundamental capabilities whose deliverables feed on 3 work packages which are working demonstrators. All of the projects in the work packages aim at realizing working systems and demonstrations in 3 years.
This 3 year program is the first major “seed” where the entire robotics community in Singapore works together towards a common and important goal. The capabilities developed will evolve beyond three years with continuously improving capabilities and new applications.
