Hybr-iT

As part of the BMBF-funded project, KUKA is developing various types of mobile systems for a variety of assembly scenarios.

The shortage of skilled workers, the demographic change, which is accompanied by a decreasing number of trainees, are increasingly presenting companies with challenges. The increasing cooperation between people and robots in production facilities is one way of solving this problem. To enable human-robot collaboration in demanding assembly processes, KUKA is implementing developments that go far beyond conventional industrial robotics in the Hybr-iT joint project.
As part of the BMBF funded project, KUKA develops various types of mobile systems for a variety of assembly scenarios. This requires the creation of a modular control architecture that supports industry 4.0 standards. The integration of nonproprietary modules allows application-specific adaptation. The focus is on occupational safety.
In this project, KUKA is developing a mobile two-arm robot system based on the LBR iiwa collaboration robot and the KMP 400 mobile platform. This requires the development of new robot/control functionality specifically for the operation and programming of mobile two-arm robots. At the research partner VW, the components and processes developed in the project will be evaluated in industrial assembly scenarios.
