We are setting the next standard of human work in the manufacturing shopfloor.
Currently, we are part of the following R&D projects:
KIT-AR is one of 20 partners participating in the DAT4.ᴢᴇʀo, a EU research project that will help revolutionize manufacturing by enabling European companies with tools to succeed in the 4th Industrial Revolution. By using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and data to improve manufacturing, factories will become more autonomous. The goal is to research ways to achieve zero-defect manufacturing in smart factories.
The project goals are:
- Achieve Zero Defect Manufacturing – Data-driven robotics and AI ensure high quality production.
- Reduce ramp-up time – “Ramp-up” is the time from product development to maximal production.
- Decrease time-to-market – Products will be produced and delivered quicker
DAT4.Zero has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme under Grant Agreement No. 958363. For more information about this project please visit DAT 4.0‘s page.
Research on zero-defect manufacturing in smart factories
The HUman MANufacturing (HUMAN) R&D project happened between 2016-2019 and aimed to research workplaces transformation by syncing automation and human workers to operate in harmony. HUMAN developed and utilized human-centered automation approaches that incorporated physical and cognitive enhancement tools to augment workers in their work processes and results.
HUMAN-NOR main goal is to propel the dissemination across Norway of the knowledge and best practices resulted from HUMAN project. Project is supported by the Research Council of Norway (Forskningsradet).
