Projects

Since 2004, IAS-Lab of the University of Padova realized that the tools and the competencies it has been developing in the field of autonomous robots and artificial intelligence could be applied to industrial robotics. At that time, well in advance on the current trend of Industry 4.0, IAS-Lab understood more intelligence and more perception were needed for industrial robot. For this reason, in 2005, IAS-Lab founded the spin-off company called IT+Robotics srl. The expertise of IAS-Lab on intelligent industrial robots started to grow year after year and IAS-lab was able to win many industrial research grants in the competitive calls of the European Commission.

Crack detection in parts of complex geometry is often done manually using magnetic particle inspection. The Thermobot project combines robotics and thermography to replace this decades-old method. Using the inspection of a whole crankshaft as an example a prototype system will be developed that can inspect complex parts, mainly targeting at the automotive industry but also at aerospace applications.

The IAS-LAb is involved in the research and development of algorithms for automatic detection of cracks in metal parts and material intrusions in carbon fiber parts. Such algorithms are able to deal with the different orientations under which a part can be seen, and distinguish between artifacts and real defects.

service robotics

 

Service Robotics is the branch of robotics aiming at the development of robots able to assist humans in their environment.

Service robots are going to be the major application field for technologies developed by the autonomous robot research community. Service robots must be designed to interact with people, so human-robot interaction technologies are crucial for service robotics. An important ability they will have is the capability to entertain and play with humans. In a word they can be "companions" to humans with specialized abilities.

Possible applications for service robots will be to assist elderly people or to allow parents to stay close to their children through telepresence, or they can act as physical avatars for virtual meetings. Moreover, they may be used for surveillance and security within houses or company buildings.

The purpose of this Robotics Research Campus is to facilitate the integration of different research activities in order to foster the development of commercial service robots. Research topics such as autonomous navigation, object and people recognition, human-robot interaction, object manipulation, ethical issues, and many others, currently treated as separate independent problems, have to be combined in order to produce effective solutions to achieve effective robots.

Robots are about to move out of the research lab and enter into our everyday life, more or less like computers did in the early 1980s.   Progress depends on supporting the enablers for this transition, and this is what we are about.

Cloud robotics: connect robots to a cloud computing and allow robots to off-load more computationally intensive tasks and even originate a more flexible and cooperative machine learning mechanism.
Application Store: adopt standards and
robots architecture to provide a common framework for developers of robotic services, functionalities and capability 'Hw independent".
Identify and set up a community with university, research institutes and companies to sharing and developing common interest solutions.
Real applications: important focus on the dissemination and transfer of technology.
