VRAIgYM

The objective of this project is:

  • to explore the fundamentals of designing virtual reality training environments with artificial intelligence systems integrated where human operators and collaborative robots can carry out working sessions and joint training in a virtual, safe, economic way and with agile configuration and deployment.
  • This type of environment would allow collaborative robots to “train” under circumstances and contexts to learn how to react appropriately to situations they may face in their daily work with human operators when deployed in real environments and thus mitigate problems arising from unusual situations

The consortium partners will work on:

  • To design parameterizable models that enable these different types of agents in a virtual environment to subject them to automatic learning techniques
  • Designing a set of algorithms for automatic learning of collaborative robots
  • Designing a set of algorithms for automatic learning of the behaviour of human operators
  • Designing a set of algorithms to optimize the collaboration between humans and robots when they perform a task together

LANTEGI 4.0

The objective of this project is:

  • To advance in the development of a system that from the theoretical structure of the factory and by means of an autonomous robotic system generates the 3D model of the real situation of the factory, capable of detecting all its components for their univocal identification, in order to have their precise location and thus generate the structure of the factory 4.0.

The consortium partners will work on:

  • Location and control of an autonomous robot that is capable of moving around a factory in a safe and efficient way, in such a way that it can generate a mesh and a cloud of points autonomously.
  • Processing of data captured by scanning sensors installed in an autonomous robot to obtain reliable and precise 3D information about the objects to be digitised.
  • Correlation of large point clouds with lighter meshing scans, both obtained by sensors installed in an autonomous robot.
  • Simplification and correction of point clouds with millimetric precision for use in the treatment of matching with digital twin entities.
  • Segmentation of industrial assets based on point clouds.
  • System for the identification of elements through instance detection techniques on selected data base.
  • Automation of the matching of 3D objects with theoretical digital models such as BIM models.
  • Automatic inclusion of geopositioned matched models in theoretical digital models.
  • Automatic update of the digital factory model based on changes or updates in digital twins.
  • Representation of digital models in mixed reality in real time for the handling of operators.
  • Implementation of parametric algorithms that allow the interaction of digital twins
