The Camozzi Group considers R&D to be one of the foundations of its growth strategy and has enthusiastically embraced this event promoted by the Leonardo da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology. The night is free to attend and offers a comprehensive programme of meetings, workshops, and activities for everyone interested in discovering the future trends and innovations in science and wanting a close look at the latest research work.
Researchers from the Camozzi Research Center (CRC) will present the Camozzi Smart Gripper, an "intelligent" pneumatic gripper developed in collaboration with the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT). It is a highly innovative device that offers a platform capable of interacting with the real world, collecting and organising data and information, as well as interacting with the user. Smart Gripper is able to combine mechanics with big data because of the development of IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) digital applications, based on sophisticated algorithms developed in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan. In particular, the application presented on the night shows "Contour Following," which demonstrates the gripper's ability to handle and move objects with complex shapes, such as small flexible tubes.
CRC researchers will also be available to museum visitors to discuss their work, the value of research within an industrial group that considers innovation as core to its DNA, and the future challenges of the manufacturing sector, which is becoming increasingly digital, smart, and green.
A complete programme for the Open Night is available on the Museum of Science and Technology website at this LINK.
THE NIGHT OF RESEARCHERS:
Now in its eighteenth edition, the Night of Researchers is an initiative promoted by the European Commission to bring citizens closer to national and international scientific communities and promote an ever-increasing awareness of the strategic importance of research for a country's development. The initiative already involves many research institutions and thousands of researchers across Europe.
