Funded by Horizon2020, TRINITY wants to improve the agility and innovation capability of European manufacturing companies. It aims to bring together both the research and industrial community in Europe with the objective of developing and helping all sized companies to implement and benefit from new digital and robotic technologies.
In order to reach these objectives TRINITY will:
Build a network of Digital Innovation Hubs (DIHs) acting as a one-stop-shop for companies to get access to digital and robotic technologies as well as technical and other services, such as training, funding or match-making. The network is composed of industry organisations, service providers, research institutes and universities specialised in advanced robotics, IoT and cybersecurity. This network will be extended over the life-time of the project.
Provide a critical mass of use cases in collaboration with industry to validate novel robot technologies that can contribute to increase the agility of production processes in relevant industrial environments across different sectors.
Create a digital access point to facilitate collaboration, networking and disseminate information and knowledge to the wider robotics.
The network will start its operation by developing use-case demonstrators in some of the most promising areas of robotics to advance agile production. These areas will include collaborative robotics as well as sensory systems to ensure safety, effective user interfaces based on augmented reality and speech, reconfigurable robot workcells and peripheral equipment (fixtures, jigs, grippers, …), programming by demonstration or IoT secure wireless networks.
These demonstrators will serve as reference for two rounds of open calls for application experiments, where companies will be supported (financially and technically) by TRINITY DIHs to advance their manufacturing processes.
Trinity will last four years from the beginning of 2019 to the end of 2022 and CECIMO is the dissemination leader.
