Enabling Autonomous Learning of Assembly Operations

in cooperation with the STARTUP AUTOBAHN partner Schaeffler

Schaeffler has automated the assembly of gearbox stages, which proved to be uneconomical to scale due to the limitations and efforts of conventional robot technology. The complexity of this task, with parts that move unpredictably, required skills similar to manual assembly. The AICA technology gave the robots intelligence and tactile sensitivity, making the automation of processes such as gearbox assembly economical and efficient. This was an opportunity for Schaeffler to demonstrate the advanced capabilities of AICA. With the help of Reinforcement Learning and closed-loop force control, the robot learned to perform the assembly process safely and autonomously - without manual programming. This reduced the integration time and minimized adjustments to production changes.
