Value Of Joint EXperimentation in digital Technologies for manufacturing and construction
Under the vision of Value Of Joint EXperimentation (VOJEXT) in digital technologies, the VOJEXT project encourages producers and SMEs to adopt cognitive autonomous systems for human-robot interaction and dynamizes science-driven industry approaches engaging human and Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) in the same loop; thus amplifying the cognitive capabilities needed to achieve more effective sociotechnical and business ecosystems. To this end, VOJEXT designs, develops, and demonstrates a cost-effective, market-oriented, agile, multipurpose and easy-to-repurpose autonomous, mobile and dexterous robotic systems as the main component of a smart, agile and scalable cognitive cyber-physical system for industry.
VOJEXT demonstrates its value through five (5) different experimental pilots, in four (4) EU countries (Spain, Hungary, Italy and Turkey) and five (5) different sectors (plastic textile, electronics, automotive, construction and creative architecture for urban regeneration); integrating traditional and non-traditional areas for AI-robotics and cognitive ICT developments. VOJEXT will integrate new fifteen (15) demonstrators during the project, to be selected through open calls.
VOJEXT brings new scenarios to the Project, fostering scientific and business driven innovation under the umbrella of Digital Innovation Hubs and engages with artistic research and use S+T+ARTS art-driven innovation approach.
VOJEXT is a 42-months project, started on July 1st 2020, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research under grant agreement No 952197. VOJEXTG is driven by an interdisciplinary consortium composed by twenty (20) partners from fourteen (14) EU and associated countries.
