TUT-RIM Flagship Project: Worksite Demo 2016

The TUT-RIM (Robotics and Intelligent Machines) Flagship project carried out as a cooperation of participating departments a full size demonstration of an autonomous collaborative robot work site.

The flagship project united forces of the four departments active in heavy industrial machines, robotics and robot perception.
The flagship project united forces of the four departments active in heavy industrial machines, robotics and robot perception. In 2015 Tampere University of Technology boosted its strategic profile area, Robotics and Intelligent Machines (TUT-RIM) by a Flagship Project that combines research groups from the Departments of Intelligent Hydraulics and Automation, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Systems, Signal Processing, and Automation Science and Engineering. The profile area received significant support from the Academy of Finland and proactively TUT allocated internal funding on the project that would solve a complex robot collaboration problem: an autonomous outdoor work site.

The 2016 demonstration is available as a video in Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DBQ2pW45Wk

The Flagship research continues as Academy of Finland funded TUT-RIM post-docs, tenure tracks being currently employed, as collaborative projects initiated by the Flagship teams, and as internally funded activities. The scientific results of the work will be published in robotics conferences and journals.
