The Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for
Robotics in Europe


SRA was compiled by Coordination Action for Robotics
in Europe (CARE), a projected funded under the 6
th

Framework (2006
-
2009)


CARE was organized by the European Robotics
Technology Platform (EUROP) whose president is the
CEO of Kuka


a German robot company


Recommendation of application scenarios and
technology roadmap for 2010, 2015 and beyond 2020


Mostly from industrial point of view

Application Requirements


12 categories to realize the scenarios


Some examples in 2015


Configuration: robot co

worker capable of
autonomous semantic learning of new environment
during manual operation


Position and mobility: autonomous transport system is
able to navigate using geometrical modeling by vision
in real
-
time


Surgery: robotized surgery taught in medical school


Human
-
robot interaction: industrial robot is
programmed by constrained natural language

Project Octopus (FP7)

High Dexterity Soft
-
bodied Robots Inspired by the Morphology and
Behavior of the Octopus


From an engineering point of view, the octopus and its
arms present interesting characteristics, such as:


infinite number of degrees of freedom (DOFs),


bending possibilities in many different directions,


variable and controllable stiffness,


high dexterity,


fine manipulation capabilities,


highly distributed control.

RobotCup


RobotCub is a 5 years long project
funded by the European Commission
through Unit E5 "Cognitive Systems,
Interaction & Robotics".


Main goal is to study cognition through
the implementation of a humanoid
robot the size of a 3.5 year old child


An open project in many different ways:


Distribute the platform openly


Develop software open
-
source,


Open to including new partners and form
collaboration worldwide.

Suggestions


Smart manufacturing initiative in Taiwan
has a similar thinking as the EU Robotics
program


A more aggressive thinking is needed for
the scientific part of the Robotics research
