Smart Lab



The Smart Lab platform is a reconfigurable assembly cell developed with INSA Hauts-de-France, equipped with mobile robotic workstations, comprising three collaborative robots and a dual-arm robot.

One of the stations is equipped with a PICKIT vision system allowing the entry of loose parts. These stations are connected to each other by attachments supporting component and tool trays. A fleet of 3 MIR mobile robots serves the various workstations. These mobile robots are also used for Logistics applications.

The Smart Lab is used for research projects, but also for training at INSA Hauts-de-France.
