Comau-Sjtu cooperative research projects will be presented at 2018 UM-Sjtu Joint Institute Summer Design Expo

On August 8, 2018, the University of Michigan - Shanghai Jiao Tong University Joint Institute Summer Design Expo will be held in the Longbing building at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. The expo will be open to the public with more than 500 guests expected to attend. Twenty seven projects will be presented, including 2 research projects carried out by Comau in partnership with students from Joint Institute.  The projects focus on providing innovative solutions for the problems that many multinational companies will encounter in production.

Respectively, the two projects are: Augmented Reality applications for an industrial assembly manual operation station and an intelligent glove tracking system. Both projects make use of the most advanced technologies to realize total quality monitoring in production and create a future-oriented human machine interface. The projects can effectively increase production efficiency and enhance quality control; their applications are very broad, especially for the intelligent gloves. The intelligent AR gloves are based on Comau’s existing intelligent manufacturing system framework planning and highly flexible data management module for intelligent manufacturing systems. They can effectively reduce the error rate in assembly and greatly raise the qualified rate in production by developing an operator operation tracking system and improving the position detection mathematic method. With the combined efforts of Comau and Joint Institute, the two projects are very fruitful and their application in factories will happen soon.

This summer design expo not only cultivates students’ sense of innovation, but also provides a new approach to explore talent development and promote the cooperation between universities and companies. As one of Comau’s many successful examples of cooperation with universities, these projects realize mutual benefits for Comau and Shanghai Jiao Tong University. University and corporate cooperation develops a path to introduce frontier technologies into production. Comau will continue to work with Shanghai Jiao Tong University in research cooperation, talent acquisition and skills development, while continuing to explore new areas of cooperation.
