The Interreg project AACOMA, working on automatic fabric handling issues for composite materials, organized a roadshow in Liege on October 20, 2021. The laboratory of robotics and automation of the University of Liege presented its research work in automatic textile handling, but also, more generally in robotics.
The audience, about 50 people, was composed of industrialists, engineers and scientists. Three demonstrations were proposed. One demonstration presented the design of a gripper specially designed for textile handling, another demonstration presented the latest advances in terms of intelligent handling and finally, the last demonstration presented the demonstrator developed in the framework of Robotix Academy on human-robot interactions.
The demonstrations were interactive and allowed exchanges with the public. These exchanges could concern the technical aspect of the demonstration, but could also have a broader scope. We were thus able to exchange on the activities of Robotix Academy with the interested persons.
