Teaching, Training and Transforming Assembly with Collaborative and Social Robots (T3CR)
Research Project , 2018 – 2019

Collaborative robots have been on the market for more than five years, but the impact on
Sw edish production, especially end-fitting, is aw aiting. In the final assembly it is often manual
w ork today and much is done based on long experience. There is a great potential for
increasing quality both on product and in the w orking environment for the operators. W ith
about tw enty percent of the product's final price, there is both time and money to save
through increased automation. The T3CR project aims to increase the return of collaborative
and social robots by training and training operators in a new w ay. T3CR w ants to increase
motivation to use robots and raise aw areness about the potential of robots through gamebased
learning and virtual training. Under Step 1, therefore, a strategy and consortium w ill be
put together for a first initiation. Experience in research and applications w ithin collaborative
and social robots can be found in the consortium but combining them w ith a product has not
been done before. Further, game platforms w ill be used in all three parts to increase the
motivation to learn and share their know ledge w ith the rest of organization. Research and
applications w ithin this area are also w ithin the group but not in combination w ith industrial
robots. Step 2 w ill test and validate the products built under Steps 1 and 2, first in the lab
environment and academy and then w ithin industry and institutes. At the end of Step 2 and in
Step 3, an internationalization w ill be done as contacts w ith foreign companies and academia
are already linked.
