Innovation in Automation

Development through digital technology of a system for picking and traceability of the electrical and electronic materials of the vehicle and connected infrastructure at the end of its useful life.

File: VEC-020100-2022-2015.

Objective: The main purpose of the project carried out by IDASA, is to research and develop an advanced picking and traceability system, as well as the gripping system of electrical and electromechanical elements, for electrical and electronic materials coming from vehicles and their connected infrastructure. This system will be based on state-of-the-art digital technologies, including artificial vision and artificial intelligence (AI), in order to automate and optimize the identification, separation and handling of these components, ensuring efficient and accurate handling.

Participants: This project is being developed by IDASA (Ingeniería de Aplicaciones S.A.), specialists in automation and robotics together with FERIMET. In the same line, the project is part of PERTE VEC, led by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, promoted by Renault Group within the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan – Funded by the European Union – NextGenerationEU)”.

The project started its development in January 2023 and is scheduled to be completed by 28/02/2025. It is financed by the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism and furthermore by the European Union.

In addition, the project aims to develop a gripping system equipped with intelligent sensors and actuators to enable efficient and safe handling of the elements. This system must be able to adapt to the diversity of shapes and sizes of the components.

On the other hand, advanced artificial vision models will be implemented that, combined with AI algorithms, will enable the accurate identification of electrical and electronic elements. These models should be able to recognize and classify components with high accuracy, even in complex industrial environments.

Finally, the gripping system will be designed to meet the specific requirements of electrical and electronic component picking. Priority will be given to adaptability and the ability to handle fragile and differently shaped components.
