Software Factory as Partner for EU INCLUSIVE
Modern manufacturing systems are becoming more and more complex because of higher demands
for fast production rate with high quality and flexibility, that is the ability to customize the production
lines to the constantly changing market requests. Despite high levels of automation of machines and
robots, humans remain central to manufacturing operations since they take charge of control and
supervision of manufacturing activities. Human operators interact with machines and robots by means
of human-machine interfaces (HMIs), which are unavoidably becoming very complex as new functions
are implemented by the production system and include a wide range of possible operational modes and commands.
In this scenario, human operators experience many difficulties to interact efficiently with the machine;
this is particularly true for middle age workers who feel uncomfortable in the interaction with a complex
computerized system and young inexperienced or disabled people who cannot effectively manage such
complex production systems.
To overcome this gap, EU INCLUSIVE aims to develop a new concept of interaction between the user
and the machines in which the behavior of the automation system adapts to human operator capabilities.
To get more informations about the project you can watch a movie on Youtube.
The video is also participating to the competition launched by the European Commission “Showcase your project”
which will end the 16 April.
The project receiving the higher number of ‘Likes’ on its YouTube video will be invited to attend the next
ESOF conference in Toulouse in July 2018. Get all your informations about that competition here.
