The efficient and safe collaboration between humans and robots is meant to assume an increasingly central role in the European manufacturing industry. Thanks to the combined use of mechatronic solutions and optical detection systems, Datalogic SpA has developed an innovative protection system characterized by 2 stereo cameras capable of detecting the arm and body of an operator.
With the SCaVa – Stereo Camera Validation project, this system will be tested through a validation method based on the most recent European safety regulations. This approach represents a keystone in the validation of the safe interaction between robots and workers in the factory, in compliance with existing safety standards.
The SCaVa solutions have been adapted according to the methodologies offered by the COVR project and in collaboration with the STIIMA-CNR of Milan and will allow the development of a new protocol to test and validate stereocameras according to current European legislation.
SCaVa is funded within the COVR Awards, a call promoted by the COVR project and funded by the Horizon 2020 Program, coordinated by the Danish Technology Institute and participated by STIIMA-CNR.
The seminar will be held in English.
