The new era on human centered robotics in Europe with user friendly, plug and play solutions

Project Summary

SHOP4CF, Smart Human Oriented Platform for Connected Factories, aims to find the right balance between cost-effective automation, repetitive tasks and involve the human workers in areas such as adaptability, creativity and agility where they create the biggest added value. Also to pursue the highly-connected factory model to reap the benefits of all the data generated within the factory.

SHOP4CF Offerings

Facilitated by a pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH), RAMP, the Robotics and Automation MarketPlace, makes the automation value chain effective and connects manufacturing companies with providers of the optimal robotics solutions and vice versa.

30 components, offered under a common architecture based on RAMI 4.0 and FIWARE Technologies, support humans in production activities and provide basic implementation blocks of human-centered manufacturing solutions.

Up to 100k equity free funding, technical and business support to SMEs, selected through 5 open calls.

Testing of SHOP4CF technologies in line with the real industry needs, facilitated by pilots at BOSCH, VW, Arcelik and Siemens.

A vibrant and growing community around the platform necessary to create the adoption critical mass and provide support.

Standardisation in the areas of collaborative robotics, AGVs and use of IoT devices on the shopfloor.

Architecture Summary

Architecture development should include both:

Components are already defined/existing and they should be taken under consideration while developing an architecture.

There should be a unified vision of how architecture should look like, and which technologies it will include for system development. This approach may be (to some extent) similar to architecture development performed in HORSE project. HORSE project is a complete example of an architecture development process with top-down approach, therefore can serve as an inspiration for SHOP4CF. Details on HORSE are available here:

 

Marketplace

Facilitated by a pan-European network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH), RAMP makes the automation value chain effective and connects manufacturing companies with providers of the optimal robotics solutions and vice versa.

 

Manufacturers gain access to robotics and digitization technologies to improve efficiency and productivity. Automation suppliers can reach their customers faster and access a larger market.

Available online apps for better manufacturing, such as:

 

  • Production Data Visualisation
  • Digitisation Audit
  • Logistics Improvement
  • Gain access to innovative digitization platforms regarding agile production, logistics automation and human-centered applications.
