On the 29th of April 2020 the Year 4 review meeting of SecondHands took place. The project was presented to the project reviewers and the representative of the European Commission. The project successfully passed the review meeting and the reviewers were satisfied of the progress. The SecondHands project finished in April 2020. Thank you to everyone who contributed in the successful implementation of the project.
The goal of SecondHands was to design a robot that can offer help to a maintenance technician in a pro-active manner. We seen this robot as a second pair of hands that can assist the technician when he/she was in need of help. The project revolvesd around four fundamental concepts:
- the design of a new robotic assistant;
- a knowledge base to facilitate proactive help;
- a high degree of human-robot interaction;
- advanced perception skills to function in a highly dynamic industrial environment.
