INESC TEC, through the Centre for Robotics in Industry and Intelligent Systems (CRIIS), participates in the European project Mari4_YARD. The project aims to develop flexible and modular manufacturing solutions in small and medium-sized shipyards, in order to increase their competitiveness – thus helping them address the main issues in terms of costs associated with the activities developed within this market sector. More specifically, INESC TEC will provide expertise on tasks orchestration mechanisms, develop intuitive human-machine interfaces for robot programming, integrate robot perception and localisation modules and resort to augmented reality technology. Moreover, INESC TEC experience on technology transfer to industry, combined with the close liaison with the University of Porto, will also be a valuable asset to the Mari4_YARD initiative.
