CA Technologies Promotes “Cobots”—Collaborative Human-Robotics

CA Technologies is partnering with Tampere University of Technology and Tieto in Finland on Cobotics—a collaborative robotics project. The project will explore the challenges of building safe, secure, and effective human-to-robot workflows. Ensuring proper control and execution of these “cobot” workflows and understanding their information requirements is central to maximizing the potential of robot-human collaboration.

“Robotics has reached a stage where the value that robots provide can be significantly amplified by enabling them to truly collaborate with humans. Developing the right models and algorithms for that collaboration, while paying careful attention to safety and cybersecurity will define the next phase in the robotics field. CA has the experience and our researchers have the deep technical expertise that can help inform this evolution,” said Otto Berkes, executive vice president and chief technology officer, CA Technologies.

The project has jointly been funded by Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, Finland’s Tampere University of Technology, Finnish IT software and service company Tieto, and CA Technologies.

The first phase of the project is predicted to conclude at the end of December 2018. CA Strategic Research innovates through scientific research and discovery and partnerships with global governments, renowned academic institutions, and industry consortia.
