Applying a “Machine Learning Pipeline” to detect unknown faults and failures in a Human Robot Interaction assembly process

Robots are utilized in repetitive, deterministic tasks in production lines or at robotic assembly workstations to carry out a range of processes, including handling of objects, operating machinery, assembly of parts, welding, and painting process. To maintain safety and security, these systems are typically completely automated in an isolated cell that run independently and separated from the operators. Robots are known for being flexible, yet they are typically not as flexible as one might think. The use of automation requires efficient, dependable processes with high output rates. The processes should be comparable in the case of product variability so that task programs and algorithms can be modified.

The VALU3S web-based repository is now available!

Considered a key exploitable result for VALU3S partners, the VALU3S web-based repository was made public on 30 November during the 8th General Assembly held in Hamburg.

This web-based repository hosts a user-friendly and cross-domain multi-layered framework consisting of a searchable catalogue of verification and validation (V&V) methods and tools applicable to specific domains and application scenarios with respect to safety, cybersecurity and privacy requirements.

In case you need more information, please check out the "Multimodal framework for characterizing verification and validation of automated systems" publication in VALU3S website.

What are you waiting for? You are just one click away from starting your V&V process!

Valu3s Use Case interview - Car Teleoperation use-case explained by Beata Davidova, from ROBOAUTO
VALU3S project is testing and demonstrating the application of improved V&V tools and workflows on 13 use-cases coming from 6 different domains. For this purpose, we have produced a series of video-interviews to our use-case owners for letting them explain needs to be addressed and benefits brought by the project. Let’s start with the Car Teleoperation use-case explained by Beata Davidova, from ROBOAUTO.

Valu3s Use Case interview - Human-Robot-Interaction in semi-automatic assembly process, PUMACY.
In this video, Bernd Bredehorst (PUMACY) explains us the Human-Robot-Interaction in semi-automatic assembly process use-case within VALU3S project. This use-case is  based  on  a  Human-Robot-Interaction (HRI) process  taking  place  on  the  shop  floor  of  a manufacturing-like environment. The process itself involves the execution of assembly tasks by human workers focusing on  the assembly of transformer units which  consist  of  multiple  parts.  HRI systems have to manage the coordination between  humans  and  robots  according  to  the  safety requirements  for collaborative  industrial robot  systems defined by several standards (e.g. ISO  10218-2:2011). VALU3S tool ensures that verification and validation of safety requirements is performed through the simulation of the use-case.

VALU3S Project represented at EFECS2022!
On 24th and 25th November, the European Forum for Electronics Components and Systems ( has been held in Amsterdam, in the beautiful location of Beurs van Berlage.

VALU3S project had the opportunity and the pleasure to be represented with a booth in the exhibition to showcase dissemination material (leaflets, brochures, videos, etc.) and to inform visitors about project activities and results. In fact, a small “crew” from Consortium was present to attract people to the booth and to talk with them.

In the main Conference Room, an intense programme of speeches and round table was undertaken. Most of the interventions were focused on future challenges of electronics concerning performance, sustainability and security.

The event was very crowded, indeed more than 600 people coming from industry, university, academia across Europe were present. Several world leader companies were present, as well as Industry Association of ECSEL.

After the two past remote editions, it was very pleasant to finally attend the event live and have the opportunity to meet face-to-face many relevant figures working in the electronics sector for years. And, indeed, it was a very nice opportunity to show what VALU3S project can do for Electronics stakeholders and, in turn, how stakeholders can contribute to VALU3S project.

VALU3S contributing to the HiPEAC 2023
VALU3S is contributing to the organization of the CPS Segment series collocated with HiPEAC 2023. The segment, which aims at cross-disciplinary bridging for large-scale safety-critical systems, is composed by three workshops:
  • ENHANCE - System Engineering and Dependability in Cyber-Physical Systems
  • FORECAST - Functional Properties and Dependability in Cyber-Physical Systems
  • STEADINESS - System Engineering and Dependability in Cyber-Physical Systems.
The segment will take place between the 16th and the 18th of January 2023, in Toulouse, France. VALU3S is one of the sponsors of the STEADINESS workshop.
The HiPEAC conference is the premier European forum for experts in computer architecture, programming models, compilers and operating systems for general-purpose, embedded and cyber-physical systems. Areas of focus and integration include safety-critical dependencies, cybersecurity, energy efficiency and machine learning.

VALU3S 8th General Assembly and Consortium Meeting
On 29th and 30th November, the 8th General Assembly and Consortium Meeting of VALU3S project was held in Hamburg, Germany.

The first day of the meeting has been dedicated to management and technical discussions, with partners giving presentation about ongoing WPs and tasks. While, in the second day two relevant events has been held: first, the third tool demonstration session (after San Sebastian and Gothenburg) has been undertaken, with tool providers showcasing their hardware and software prototypes live. After, a press release has been held to promote the public launch of the VALU3S web-based repository to external stakeholders.

These were two very intense days in Hamburg, which have been fundamental to ensure a successful end of the project. The last mile is the most difficult one, but VALU3S Consortium will do the best to cross the finish line!
