Project goals

BRILLIANT pursues two main objectives towards autonomous uptake of collaborative solutions by SMEs:

  1. Developing smart, orchestrated and reconfigurable collaborative workcells to reduce adoption barriers of collaborative solutions for SMEs. For this reason, it introduces solutions for seamless connection of company equipment and digitisation of signals and parameters coming from legacy systems into a cloud platform based on ILVM. At the same time, it provides a stepwise procedure, with guidelines and quantifiable KPIs, for evaluating the potential of current industrial applications towards the adoption of collaborative approaches.
  2. Combine flexibility and dexterity of humans with repeatability of cobots towards artisanal manufacturing 4.0. Such an ambitious goal, key to a company like Ideal-Tek and many other SMEs, is made possible by providing the BRILLIANT solution with an orchestrating entity like the IM that allows to define strategies to propose task assignment to cobot(s) and automated machines (based on speed and repeatability) vs human (based on experience, flexibility and dexterity).

The role of Holonix

Holonix is involved in Brilliant project with his solution ILVM to support the realisation of collaborative systems.

Holonix will:

  • Extend ILVM’s current features by integrating SUPSI’s Intervention Manager and TRINITY’s Object Detection and Safe Human Detection in a Collaborative Work Cell;
  • Extend HOLONIX’ products, services and value proposition with the BRILLIANT solution, supporting the realisation of collaborative work cells targeting different customers in several sectors.
  • Support at least one or more of its existent customers in realising a new collaborative solution out of the project activities.

Holonix will be the technology provider and the exploitation partner.
