Presentation of the ODIN demonstrator at SIAS 2024


The Safety of Industrial Automated Systems (SIAS) is a conference series taking a close look at R&D activities and best practices in the industry from a safety viewpoint. The conference attracts international work systems end-users, designers and occupational health and safety experts interested in the safety of industrial automated systems.

After a series of SIAS conference held in Montreal, Bonn, Chicago, Nancy and Tokyo, the edition 2024 has been organized by the Finnish Society of Automation in Tampere (Finland) on the 12-13 of June 2024. Our partner Tampere University contributed to the organization of the conference and participated to the numerous panel discussions on topics relevant to our ODIN project such as:

  • Safety of machinery concepts and principles
  • Collaboration with autonomous machines
  • Socio-technical system approach to automation safety
  • Safety of autonomous machines, robots and cobots
  • Control system designs and evaluations
  • Digital twins, etc.

Following the 2-day conference, the participants have been offered two different industrial visits on the 14 of June 2024 in either i) Kalmar Technology and Competence Center & Bronto Skylift Rahola factory, or ii) Fastems factory & Tampere University. The participants who choose the 2nd organized tour have been introduced to the research activities performed at Tampere University in the field of human robot collaboration with large industrial robots. The industrial tour focused on the HRC Pilot Line at Tampere University which is a pre-commercial production and prototyping environment that enables learning through experimentation in new product, process and related-service development.

As part of the tour, the small-scale pilots developed within ODIN have been showcased to the international participants (e.g. Germany, France, Estonia, Canada, Japan, etc.) who showed a high interest for our technologies while vivid discussions took place on the projection system and the VR training.
