Dec 18th 2019 - Get a glimpse into the industry of the future

Updated: Sep 17

Are you curious of how the industry will look like in the future? On December 18th we invite you to take a peek at the latest research conducted at the University of Skövde. Several research projects are represented this day. Discuss about human-robot collaboration, virtual ergonomics, knowledge-driven optimization and how a company can optimize its production systems. Get a first look at the latest demonstrators. Welcome to the future industry of Sweden.

A Synergistic Research Presentation & Demonstration Day at ASSAR Industrial Innovation Arena on December 18th 8:30-15:00.


8:30 – 9:00 Coffee

9:00 – 9:15 Welcome and Introduction

9:15 – 9:45 Multi-disciplinary simulations and meta-modeling based optimization for machining processes/stations

9:45 – 10:15 Energy and Cycle Time Optimization of Robotic Cells using Virtual Commissioning Tools

10:15 – 10:30 Break

10:30 – 10:50 Virtual Ergonomics - Simulation-Based Assessment and Optimization

10:50 – 11:20 Combining Human-Robot Collaboration Simulation and Load Balancing

11:20 – 11:40 Knowledge-Driven Optimization

11:40 – 12:00 Managing Knowledge Extracted from Virtual Factories with a Provenance Ontology

12:00 – 13:00 “Jullunch” at ASSAR

13:00 – 15:00 Presentations of new demonstrators, particularly an EU-funded assembly cell with Human-Robot Collaboration.

The day is organized partly for the final workshop of the KK-funded Synergy-KDDS* project, but also for showing some new progresses of other KK/EU-funded projects like VF-KDO, MOSIM, SVE, ManuWork that University of Skövde is running together with various industrial partners. As the day is near Christmas, a light Swedish “jullunch” will be served during the lunch time. After lunch we will walk around in groups to check different demonstrators and talk to each other.


Please send an e-mail to Research Officer, Rena Ahmad, before 13 December 2019.
