Work Plan

WP1: Concept Development

  • Definition of requirements for the individual system modules and the demonstrators.

WP2: Development of Circuit Board (PCB)

  • Development of Functional Development Kits (including PCB, frugal chip) to evaluate the algorithms.

WP3: Development of Virtual Test Environment

  • Development of a Runtime environment for AI simulations, digital twin for the main tasks (grasping, path planning, force torque control), and creation of a sufficient database to support the development and testing of the solutions.

WP4: Development of Frugal Algorithms

  • Creation of a software library of algorithms, optimization of existing algorithms for different applications (quality control, grasp angle detection, path planning, and location recognition).

WP5: Implementation of system demonstrators, Benchmarking

  • Setup, commissioning, and integration of system demonstrators with implemented functionalities (grasping, path planning, visual servoing, force torque control, quality control), using development kits from WP2.

WP6: Software Platform Investigation

  • Selection of a software platform that enables the integration of different software libraries.

WP7: Validation and Optimization

  • Optimize and validate the demonstrators, which will be tested on industrial applications.

WP8: Documentation, Publication, and Presentation

  • Presentation of potential industrial applications using system demonstrators; publication of scientific results; and documentation to ensure sustainable industrial and scientific value.

WP9: Project Management

  • Ensure scientific progress and evaluate progress under time and financial constraints.
