Cobot Knowledge Lab

Project: Regional Foundations

Project Details


Denmark has a unique position of strength in relation to the development and production of collaborative robot systems, the so-called "cobots", which is a collaborative robot that can enable the combination of human capabilities with the robots' automation. Large opportunities are seen in collaborative robotics, with an expected global growth rate of over 60% by 2025.

The project aims to provide knowledge about the benefits of using collaborative robot technology in Danish companies, including primarily among SMEs. The project must therefore contribute to more companies utilizing and implementing new technologies that can increase production efficiency and productivity.

The project will bring together a number of leading Danish and international competencies in a consortium, the Cobot Knowledge Lab, which can increase productivity in the manufacturing industry and support Denmark's leading position in the development and use of collaborative robot technology (cobots).

The project will develop and test new tools that business leaders can use to make the right choices. to meet the technological, business, managerial, organizational and human challenges that Danish manufacturing companies encounter when they want to exploit the opportunities in cobots.

The project is being carried out by the Danish Technological Institute in a consortium partnership with the Danish Industrial Robotics Institute (DIRA), Aarhus University (AU), Odense Robotics, SDU Sønderborg and the Fraunhofer-Institut für Produktionstechnik und Automatisierung IPA (Fraunhofer).
