13 April 2021: "Soft objects robotic manipulation for the future of European factories"_During the ERF 2021

On Tuesday, the 13th of  April 11:20 am CEST, there will be a workshop co-organised by the European funded project MERGING on "Soft objects robotic manipulation for the future of European factories" to be held during the European Robotics Forum 2021 (online). The workshop has been organised together with three other projects (APRIL, REMODEL and SOFTMANBOT), to compare their approaches to soft objects manipulation and to identify synergies and specificities.

After an introduction by José Carlos Caldeira, Honorary Board Member of EFFRA - European Factories of the Future Research Association, each project will focus its presentation on one use-case/domain, and at the end, a 25 minutes roundtable and Q&A will discuss synergies between the four projects, the changes in relative function and place of humans and robots in future European factories, and possibilities for standardization.
