ReconCycle Summer School 2023 in Mallorca

Adaptive Intelligent Robots with Soft Hands: Methods and Experiments

The goal of this summer school is to transfer advanced robotics and computer vision knowledge to graduate students and younger postdocs with a focus on modern adaptive methods. These methods will be from AI (network learning), but also from different fields of robotics including adaptive control as well as the introduction of modern, highly adaptive robotic hands to teach participants about the mechanical as well as control- and cognitive-related power of adaptation in computer vision and robotics. 

As target application two talks from expert from the recycling industry will be incorporated into this school, which is a field where adaptive methods are highly needed for advanced “green” automation. 

The format of this school will be lectures by experts and discussion as well as experimental work, where one day during this school students will perform experiments on a set of computer vision as well as robotics platforms. We also include a poster session and 11 student talks, selected on the grounds of their abstract (to be submitted on registration), where students can present their work, too.

Join us for ReconCycle Summer School 2023 in Mallorca, October 23-26!

ReconCycle at MECSPE 2023

The ReconCycle partner, qbrobotics, has developed an application that allows one qb SoftClaw and one qb SoftHand2 Research to work together in disassembling certain electronic components.

Industrial development of this application will be presented in booth F45, Hall 30 at MECSPE 2023, the international reference fair for the Manufacturing industry, which will be held March 29-31, 2023 at BolognaFiere in Bologna, Italy.

No sensors or vision systems were required to perform this task, only the mechanical intelligence of the device.

ReconCycle Kickoff Meeting

Kickoff Meeting of Reconcycle in Ljubljana

ReconCycle is one of the four research and innovation actions that were selected for funding in H2020 call “ICT-09-2019-2020”, Robotics in Application Areas. The project’s kickoff meeting was held at Jožef Stefan Institute in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from February 13th – 14th, 2020. At the meetings the partners were focusing on the establishment of the initial experimental environment and on the main research issues that need to be addressed in the project to implement the recycling cell prototype.
