LIAA groundwork

The goals of LIAA are ambitious and probably would have been over-ambitious until recently. It is the strong opinion of the LIAA-consortium that the time is now to address these goals because the following groundwork is finally available:

 

  • Light-weight robots

    In the last years single- and dual-arm-robots dedicated to assembly and to working in close cooperation with humans became available on the market. To name just a few: Universal Robots UR5, KUKA LBR, ABB dual arm concept robot (FRIDA), Rethink Robotics Baxter. LIAA will use these robots as hardware basis and focus on their application to symbiotic assembly.

     

  • ROS Industrial

    ROS has emerged as the de-facto standard in the service robotics domain over the last few years. The contribution of many people to this open source project has converged in a middleware plus many libraries and tools for robotics. A ROS Industrial consortium now exists with the goal of using ROS also for industrial robotics. LIAA will be grounded on ROS Industrial to ensure that all effort within LIAA is dedicated to developing the required functionality for symbiotic human assembly and not to developing yet another robotics middleware and infrastructure.


  • Results of previous/ongoing projects:

    LIAA will make use of the results of previous projects where LIAA partners where involved. To name just the most important ones: SMErobotics (general task and skill formalism, situation awareness, error recovery); ROSETTA (assembly task definition, two-armed assembly); PRACE (human-robot-interaction for assembly task definition).
