Open Call for Proposals: Smart Logistics for Manufacturing

Factories of the Future project Logistics for Manufacturing SMEs (L4MS) has launched its first open call for proposals for application experiments (AEs).

This open call aims to validate the cost effective and rapid deployment of mobile robots in manufacturing SMEs and mid-caps through virtualization (OPIL + 3D factory simulator). The experiments will demonstrate the value of the solution to really reduce the installation, deployment and configuration time and cost by a factor of 10. The AEs will be conducted by using OPIL integration platform and 3D simulator, for which free licenses and complete guidance will be offered by L4MS.

Proposals should address the implementation of small logistics automation solutions tackling the barriers faced by manufacturing SMEs such as (but not limited to):

  • End-to-end fully automated logistics solutions
  • Hybrid (human-robot collaboration) automated logistics solutions
  • Highly configurable automated logistics solutions
  • Multi-vendor logistics solutions

Up to up to €250,000 in funding is available. The call will close on 30 November 2018.
