HEPHESTOS Project Workshop @ERF 2016,
23 March 2016

The industrial production in Europe is faced with mass customization and short-life cycle of high variants of products. More flexible interactive robotic systems and new models for they employment in the industry are required. The workshop present and discuss a variety of novel approaches to enhance standard industrial robotic systems to become more flexible, intuitive programmable, and interactive including physical contact with human and the environment in small batch machining. Several novel aspects from interactive programming, novel affordable sensing, compensation for errors and uncertainties, control of interaction etc., and the integration in modern industrial robot systems will be critically evaluated. The main application fields concerns small to micro SMEs, as well as customized manufacturing in the large industry.
