Welcome to the

CoMRAde Project Site



The CoMRAde Project is supported by EU H2020-MSCA-IF-2016 (MARIE SkLodowska-CURIE ACTIONS Individual Fellowships)

The main objective of this project is to develop a mobile manipulator that can effectively learn impedance critical tasks by means of physical interactions with a human, and acquire humanís abilities via human-to-robot skill transfer for subsequent autonomous task execution. In a factory environment, execution of such tasks, e.g., polishing, drilling, screwing, are frequently encountered and can be easily accomplished by human workers. Nevertheless, automating these tasks with robots require expert robotics engineering knowledge, robot-specific arrangements in the factory, and exact model of the environment. Through the integration of human-to-robot skill transfer techniques, these monotonous tasks can be autonomously handled by a mobile manipulator so that human workers can focus on more complicated tasks.

The projects robot

To that end, a mobile manipulator - that can effectively learn impedance critical tasks by means of physical interactions with a human, and acquire human's abilities via human-to-robot skill transfer for subsequent autonomous task execution - will be developed and tested in a real factory with actual manufacturing tasks.
