THOMAS - Mobile dual arm robotic workers with embedded cognition for hybrid and dynamically reconfigurable manufacturing systems

THOMAS project is a four year project funded by the European Commission in the Horizon 2020 programme under Grant agreement No: 723616.  

The project consortium involves eight partners from industrial end users, technology providers and research institutions.

THOMAS vision is to create a dynamically re-configurable shop floor with mobile dual arm robots, able to perceive their environment and cooperate with other robots and humans.

THOMAS - Overall concept

In particular, the proposed mobile dual arm robots are:

  1. able to navigate freely and in a safe way across the shop floor avoiding humans and obstacles
  2. able perform tasks on products that are being transported by autonomous robotic units as well
  3. able to position themselves inside workstations and execute tasks using the available tooling
  4. able to be dynamically re-allocated to different tasks without human intervention
  5. able to perceive their environment and adjust their behaviour to collaborate with humans
  6. able to communicate with each other through a network of services and reason over their
    course of actions
     in order to achieve the production goals.
