POCI-01-0247-FEDER-046103 | LISBOA-01-0247-FEDER-046103

The project Augmanity intends to address main challenges to the industry in an age of unprecedented uncertainty, by:

  • Developing relevant technologies that make industry workplaces more attractive in future (eg: by providing intelligent and interactive wearables for the workforce);
  • Optimizing work tasks definition in such way that minimizes or eliminates health problems from intensive hard work, by improved ergonomic (eg: by developing external aid systems like exoskeletons adapted to the relevant activities);
  • Reducing monotonous activities or eliminating associate frustration associated with ‘wasteactivities’ (eg: by camera monitoring/anticipation of logistic deliveries traffic congestion, we can optimize the routes assuring the logistic operator has an optimized route, or that this can be done automatically);
  • Developing appropriate technology that allows existing workforce to be prepared for the new digitalization paradigm (eg: Augmented & Mixed Reality will improve the way our plant service technicians operate/troubleshoot);
  • Using smart tools to measure or even promote tailored associate engagement (eg: HR platforms that use different datasources combined to measure such indicators);
  • Taking best advantage of the integration of the cyber physical systems and ultra-connectivity within the industrial value chain (eg: by using 5G technology for connecting from sensor networks to machines in assembly lines);
  • All this should be developed having in mind the energy efficiency that allows to have smart/green factories in the future.
