1. Degree of novelty and relevance of the preliminary (already available) results related to the project in relation to national and international state of the art

On the other way INCDMTM Bucharest has a strong experience for more than 20 years in producing industrial manipulator arms, industrial robots, utilitarian robots and security robots. A strong collaboration with Group Renault had as a result a wide variety of line robots and automatization equipment already implemented into the production lines of Dacia Renault Pitesti.

 

  1. Presentation and argumentation of TRL

                The project starts based on the result of the previous experience of INCDMTM in the robot domain. Basically, INCDMTM is familiarized with the issues related to mechanical design of the automatic machines and in the sensors area. Therefore, at the project start the level of maturity is placed within TRL2. The MISO design and demonstrator has as a result the achievement of the level of maturity TRL3, meaning analytical and critical function and/or characteristic proof-of-concept, as presented in the table above. It can be mentioned: Production line robot with 6 inter operational checkpoints for DCV; Installation for control of band and twist of the rod assembled; Installation for checking air-air tightness of the engine sealing’s; Line robot for shock control of differential crown teeth’s; Automatic device for control of channels diameters of K Engine; Line robot control device (control deviations of form and position); SAM robot for testing carter engine tightness, line robot for control levels and diameters of machined cylinders, etc.

 

  1. Preliminary results available prior the project application

Directly corelated with the project we must mention that we already have 5 patents, 6 speciality publications, 3 research projects, 2 intervention robots, a utilitarian robot and one technological line control automatized robot.

INCDMTM is one of the Romanian experts in moving equipment from robots to extremely accurate moving systems used in industry, CNC measurement equipment, and automotive.

 

  1. Expertise of experienced researchers and postdoctoral researchers nominated in the project team

The project respects the principle of equal opportunities both in development and in implementation funding application (the project team includes researchers both men and women, both young researchers, PhD students and postdocs all of them having a vast experience in project domain). INCDMTM has very well-trained personnel in the project domain. All expertise of it will be put together to develop in well conditions the proposed project

 

  1. Presentation of the research infrastructure available for the project

A powerful infrastructure, existing into INCDMTM will be put at the project disposal, along with well-trained specialists having a complex experience into mechatronic domain. New, modern equipment are prepared and ready to fulfil the proposed project. We can mention some of the most representative:
