Information

SMErobot™ was an Integrated Project within the 6th Framework Programme of the EC to create a new family of SME-suitable robots and to exploit its potentials for competitive SME manufacturing (March 2005 - May 2009).

The following web page gives an overview of its project results.

At a glance SMErobot™ presented its project results twice to a large public: in June 2008 at Automatica trade fair in Munich, Germany, and in Mai 2009 at its final workshop in Stuttgart, Germany. All results and all exhibits are well documented on the concerning webpages AUTOMATICA Special and Final Project Workshop.

If you want to have a first impression on the project vision and the final results. Please download the project movies "Coffee Break" and "Final Project Video" or watch them directly on the SMErobot youtube channel.

If you are more interested in the scientific results of SMErobot, please also visit our Scientific Articles website.

The project has established itself as a brandmark and has received highest recognition and reward from robotics research, robot equipment suppliers and particularly end-users of all domains and sizes. The Consortium has very much enjoyed the project in all its facets:
Results
The wide variety of results, both in terms of knowledge, demonstrators, prototypes and software tools have to undergo the typical product life-cycle following the project runtime: from pre-competitive products and services towards innovations for the benefit of a European automation supply industry and end-users:
