ROBOFOOT

Smart robotics for high added value footwear industry

Smart robotics for high added value footwear industry

  • Duration:

The ROBOFOOT project addresses the urgent need for intelligent solutions to automate complex and still mostly manual processes in industrial production. In this case, the project ROBOFOOT aims at introducing robotics on the manufacturing of footwear, which is still mainly handcrafted. The project develops robotic solutions to optimize and automate the production process in order to allow higher quality products at competitive prices. The target area is the production of fashion and other high added value shoes where Europe still maintains its leadership. ROBOFOOT brings together a consortium composed of 10 institutions from 3 European countries (Italy, Spain and Germany).
