PROGRAM & PROJECT REALISATION
COGNIPLANT - COGNITIVE PLATFORM TO ENHANCE 360º PERFORMANCE AND SUSTAINABILITY OF THE EUROPEAN PROCESS INDUSTRY (October 2019 - March 2024)
COGNIPLANT project will develop and demonstrate an innovative approach for the advanced digitization and intelligent management of the process industries. This approach will be based on a novel vision to data monitoring and analysis, that will make the most of the latest developments on advanced analytics and cognitive reasoning, coupled with a disruptive use of the Digital Twin concept to improve Production plants’ operation performance by up to 68% in real time control of the productive environment, 65% in quality control of the final products and 70 % in response time to uncontrolled incidents.
The concept will be implemented by four end-users from four different SPIRE industries, one chemical industry in Austria, one aluminum refinery in Ireland, one concrete manufacturing industry in Italy and one metal industry in Spain. The COGNIPLANT solution will provide a hierarchical monitoring and supervisory control that will give a comprehensive vision of the plants’ production performance as well as the energy and resource consumption. Advanced data analytics will be applied to extract valuable information from the data collected about the processes and their effect on the production plant’s overall performance enabling to design and simulate operation plans in digital twin models based on the conclusions. As a result, optimal operation plans will be obtained that will improve the performance of those cognitive production plants. In addition, the project will demonstrate the positive impact derived from the implementation of COGNIPLANT solution that will allow industries reducing their CO2 emissions up to 20%.
A training strategy will be designed to provide a comprehensive framework for the dissemination of the project outcomes and a clear understanding of the new solution for the employees of the SPIRE sectors.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 869931.

ACROBA - AI-Driven Cognitive Robotic Platform for Agile Production environments (January 2021 - June 2024)
ACROBA project aims to develop and demonstrate a novel concept of cognitive robotic platforms based on a modular approach able to be smoothly adapted to virtually any industrial scenario applying agile manufacturing principles. The novel industrial platform will be based on the concept of plug-and-produce, featuring a modular and scalable architecture which will allow the connection of robotic systems with enhanced cognitive capabilities to deal with cyber physical systems (CPS) in fast-changing production environments. ACROBA Platform will take advantage of artificial intelligence and cognitive modules to meet personalisation requirements and enhance mass product customisation through advanced robotic systems capable of self-adapting to the different production needs. A novel ecosystem will be built as a result of this project, enabling the fast and economic deployment of advanced robotic solutions in agile manufacturing industrial lines, especially industrial SMEs. The characteristics of the ACROBA platform will allow its cost-effective integration and smooth adoption by diverse industrial scenarios to realise their true industrialisation within agile production environments.
The platform will depart from the COPRA-AP reference architecture for the design of a novel generic module-based platform easily configurable and adaptable to virtually any manufacturing line. This platform will be provided with a decentralized ROS node-based structure to enhance its modularity. ACROBA Platform will definitely serve as a cost-effective solution for a wide range of Industrial sectors, both inside the consortium as well as additional industrial sectors that will be addressed in the future. The Project approach will be demonstrated by means of five industrial large-scale real pilots, Additionally, the Platform will be tested through twelve dedicated Hackatons and two Open calls for technology transfer experiments.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101017284.
