[26.07.2016] Bots2Rec First deliverables submitted

The results of the first months of the Bots2ReC project have been summarized in the four deliverables, which were submitted to the Commission in due time.

Deliverable 1.1 displays a detailed specification of the asbestos-removal tasks as a results of considerable research and analysis by the partners involved. From this, possible tools to perform the identified tasks have been derived.
Deliverable 2.1 sums up the first simulations of the robotic system performed in WP2. Very interesting and promising results have been obtained by the partners involved.
Deliverable 8.1 presents the results of the work performed by the coordinator to implement a platform for data management, storage and exchange.
Deliverable 8.2 summarizes the Bots2ReC project website and its functionalities.

[01.06.2016] Bots2Rec ROS Training

After our first quarterly consortium meeting, Sigma hosted a ROS training for the consortium members and for their students. Lecturers from Sigma Clermont, Eurecat, Robotnik and RWTH Aachen University guided trough the basic concepts of ROS, robot modelling, robot simulation and robot motion planning during two days of intensive training and practical exercise. Specifically for the project, code sharing strategies using the Bots2ReC Git Server were shown and trained to guarantee a smooth collaboration during software development. We are looking forward to productive future developments and a lot of source code

[13.05.2016] Robotic Unit: Preliminary Analysis of the Stability

To perform the overall system layout and analysis, a preliminary geometric model of the robotic unit was created based on the initial choice of the arm architecture, dimensions of the mobile base and the weight distribution of their components. A quasi-statically balanced model of the robotic unit was built on Geogebra for the approximate evaluation of the stability margin and dimensional synthesis:
  • The effect of the design parameters (arm link lengths and masses of the different components) on the stability of the robotic unit was studied.
  • The static stability of the robotic unit was analyzed during different cleaning scenarios (wall, ceiling, floor, corner points, nearby obstacles).
  • The initial analysis indicates the need for additional stabilizers for the robotic unit that will be subject to further investigation.

[12.05.2016] Specification of asbestos removal tasks

In the first month of the project, the process of asbestos removal was investigated, analyzed an documented in detail for different real world scenarios. In order to make clear for all partners of Bots2Rec what asbestos removal is, some pictures taken on different sites and explanations had been given. A standard level of flats and a scenario of asbestos removal had been drawn and described with all specific aspects of human removal. All the elements and information shared had been found by meeting several persons from different origins. With the different tools used for the asbestos removal, the different partners will proceed to tests. Objectives will be to define the best tools linked to the tasks that need to be done.
