Sustainable and Reliable Robotics for Part Handling in Manufacturing Automation

1/10/2013 – 31/03/2017

STAMINA aims to create a fleet of robots for assembly processes capable of performing Kitting, De-Paletizing and Bin-Picking.

Part handling during assembly stages in the automotive industry has low levels of automation, due to the high diversity of products and parts, as well as suppliers.

STAMINA goal is to develop a fleet of autonomous and mobile industrial robots with different sensory, planning and physical capabilities for solving three main logistic and handling tasks of assembly stages: De-palletizing, Bin-Picking and Kitting.
The development of the project uses lean methodologies, by having a series of development and validation tests, to assess the performance and validation of the system and allow goal-driven research.

STAMINA gives special attention to system integration, promoting and assessing the development of sustainable and scalable robotic systems to ensure a clear path for future exploitation of the developed technologies.
