The ARISE project is a transformative initiative in the field of industrial Human-Robot Interaction (HRI). This ambitious project aims to revolutionise manufacturing, healthcare, and service industries by making industrial HRI deployments simpler, cheaper, and more widespread across Europe. ARISE aligns with the principles of Industry 5.0, focusing on creating resilient, sustainable, and human-centric work environments. The project aims to establish industrial HRI as a key asset for seamless collaboration between humans and robots, enhancing efficiency and productivity.
The ARISE project will
- address major application challenges from today’s industry,
- develop human-centric solutions, tools, and software modules which expand the state-of-the-art in industrial HRI,
- deploy industrial HRI at scale in four testing and experimentation facilities and more than 25 workplaces across Europe (FSTP Projects).
The project will be demonstrated in multiple use cases: Healthcare, Manufacturing and Service In the healthcare sector, PAL Robotics is at the forefront, addressing two critical challenges: enhancing HRI through multimodal interaction and streamlining fetch & carry tasks in healthcare environments. Using the TIAGo robot, PAL Robotics will conduct tests and validations in its own facilities, including a real-life scenario kitchen, to emulate practical applications.
ARISE will build on and validate industrial applications for the PAL Robotics’ ROS4HRI framework, with the aim of turning it into the de facto ROS 2 standard for HRI development. Through ARISE, PAL Robotics will work to redefine the future of industrial HRI, making it an integral part of the evolving Industry 5.0 landscape.
