In recent years, there has been a shift from mass production to customization, presenting new challenges for conventional production lines that were traditionally focused on a single product variant or product family. These limitations have become increasingly evident in light of the changing needs of modern production.
To address these challenges, MASTERLY aims to develop flexible robotic solutions that can overcome these limitations. This will involve the use of modular grippers combined with cutting-edge robotic technologies such as mobile, high and low payload industrial and collaborative robots, and smart cranes. These solutions will be enhanced with AI-driven advanced control and perception capabilities that will enable them to operate autonomously, handling a wide range of parts varying in size, shape, and material, and being acceptable to workers of all genders.
