Control the safety of your robot colleagues: COVR opens its second round of applications

Collaborative robots - robots that work closely with people - offer new and exciting opportunities, but the collaboration also increasingly places new demands on safety procedures.

The European project COVR, which is led by the Danish Technological Institute (DTI), will contribute to increasing the safety of people and robots who share work spaces in production spaces around Europe.

Apply for a COVR Award today
Financing of up to 60,000 (just under DKK 450,000), advice, use of test facilities in laboratories and ongoing assessments through safety and validation processes – these are just some of the things you can get from winning a COVR Award.

At the same time, you contribute to providing a comprehensive, clear framework for the safety approval of cobots when you participate in the project.

If you work with safety and collaborative robotics - whether it be mobile robots, exoskeletons, health robots or completely classic collaborative robot arms - then you can apply to become part of COVR, either alone or in a consortium, by getting an Award.

Robot companies must comply with the same safety guidelines
Robots, which were previously fenced, now work on the production floor shoulder to shoulder with production workers. This places new demands on companies - and therefore COVR will support the development of safe collaborative robotics technology.

COVR has a special focus on validation of safety - how to test / measure / document that your robot solution meets existing regulations.

The goal is to create an overview of cobot safety issues in different domains: What challenges are being worked on and where there are gaps in the legislation -- based on the experience of the participating companies?

It should all contribute to the development of simpler and standardized approval methods enabling companies across Europe to use, develop, produce and install safe cobot solutions more quickly, and not least comply with the same safety guidelines.

You can apply for a COVR Award already today or read more about the project here.

The COVR consortium consists of the Danish Technological Institute (DTI), the Italian National Research Council (CNR), the German Fraunhofer Institute (IFF), the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and the Dutch Roessingh Research and Development (RRD).
