Smart digital systems platforms
The collaborative robotics platform is home to joint research and development between the CEA and its industrial partners on systems like cobots and exoskeletons that aim to make manual tasks easier, improve operator precision, and increase productivity. The systems developed are either stationary, mobile, or remotely-operated for use in hostile environments.
The platform evaluates potential applications for these breakthrough technologies and explores emerging uses that could potentially respond to the needs of the large manufacturing corporations that use the platform. The platform’s other research—conducted in partnership with equipment manufacturers—drives innovations in human-robot interaction.
The platform’s know-how in force-controlled robots—and, in particular, very-low-friction actuators offering excellent rigidity, light weight, and low inertia—has earned it a leading position in the European R&D landscape. These technologies enable extremely precise force control and, as a result, enhanced safety for operators working nearby.
The platform’s industrial partners include Areva, PSA Peugeot Citroën, Technip, RB3D, Haption, and Sarrazin Technologies.
