The INTERREG 4A project Intelligent Robots for Handling of Flexible Objects (IRFO) is hosting a workshop to present the scientific results of the two first project years and to demonstrate the robot demonstrator.

The project's aim is to analyze and handle deformable and flexible objects, such as meat, by using robots. The workshop is aimed at scientists and end-users, who will be employed in the automatic handling of such objects. The workshop will focus on the tasks in the project titled as above, where focus is to bundle 3d-vision, grasping, sensing &  modeling of flexible objects using information extracted by 3d-vision.

The partners in the project Intelligent Robots for Handling of flexible objects have the intension of showing the scientific outcome of their work and bring it to public use in the future. Hopefully, this technology can create more workplaces and better work environment in European industry. Visitors should participate, because this workshop are integrating so many difficult tasks, that it is by any means a very progressive project aiming to be a frontend technology to be used in the industry in the future

Planned follow-up

The outcome of the workshop can be strengthened by collecting information about the industrial need for handling of flexible objects and in which business areas this could be applied. This information will be made available to attendants of the workshop.

Further information

Visiting the website www.interreg-robot.eu - which contains articles, videos, and other scientific work within the area of the workshop - will help clarify the problems investigated by speakers and give a more detailed overview to flexible object handling.

A demonstrator from an actual project, which bundles various parts of the above technology, will be on display at the Forum. The technologies, such as vision, modelling and grasping together with handling of flexible objects can be investigated in a real application. The demonstrator intends to show state-of-the-art for such technologies, and will in the future be transferred to system integrators working on high-level robotic platforms.

The European Robotics Forum, organized by the European robotic networks EURON, EUROP, the euRobotics Coordination Action and hosted by The Danish Technological Institute, is in the field of robotics the meeting point for engineers, scientists and business people from all over Europe. The event will take place from 5-7 March 2012 in Odense, Denmark. 

More than 300 robotics researchers from industry and academia, as well as entrepreneurs and public investors, are expected to discuss the latest developments, research challenges and business opportunities for European robotics. 
This year's theme of the European Robotics Forum is "European Robotics towards new horizons".
