Key to agile production is efficient flow of material, also known as intralogistics. Although very promising as a flexible component in intralogistics chains, robotics has not yet found its way into agile production. Especially for operation alongside humans, current robots lack the required high degree of flexibility, capability, cost-effectiveness and safety. The EU-funded DARKO project is developing cutting-edge agile production robots with energy-efficient elastic actuators to execute highly dynamic motions (throwing, picking and placing while in motion). The robots will have predictive planning capabilities, which allow safe and efficient operation within unknown, changing environments; and will be aware of humans and their intentions. DARKO is aligned with use cases at BSH, the largest manufacturer of home appliances in Europe.
