CWA "Articulated industrial robots – elastostatic compliance calibration"  

The COROMA project funded under H2020 aims to develop a cognitively enhanced robot that can execute multiple tasks for the manufacturing of metal and composite parts. COROMA will therefore help to provide the flexibility that European metalworking and advanced material manufacturing companies require competing in the rapidly evolving global market.

The project consortium considers standardization as an important and relevant topic. This is why this is perceived as an important tool for the transfer of knowledge from research into practice.

The forthcoming CEN Workshop Agreement "Articulated industrial robots – elastostatic compliance calibration" is intended to provide an international mutual understanding of robotic compliance among customers, developers, manufacturers and researchers. The essence of this work is to describe one best practice elastostatic compliance calibration for articulated industrial robots; using an enhanced stiffness formulation for the robot model, a pragmatic measurement approach inspired by the application and an identification of the model parameters based on position data.

The workshop participants have now reached agreement on the draft text of the CWA (CEN Workshop Agreement), which is now available for public review and commenting until 4th June 2019. Comments can be directly submitted to the Workshop Secretary Ms. Saskia Maresch ( using the commenting form .

Comments received will be reviewed by the Workshop. The consensus outcome will then be published as a CEN Workshop Agreement.
