InteX – Next Generaon AI based Testbeds for Wearable Robocs

Units : Research Unit in Osteopathy | ULB566

Description :

InteX aligns with the EIT Manufacturing flagship “Human-machine co-working for socially sustainable manufacturing” by
proposing the first commercial, AI
enabled plaorm for the evaluaon of exoskeletons in the manufacturing and construcon sectors. InteX will allow tesng and
comparison of industrial
exoskeletons in a realisc manner without having to incur the expensive costs in materials and me that in situ tesng would
otherwise require.
InteX consists of:

• test beds that include all the necessary devices (HW, sensors and actuators) to evaluate exoskeletons from different
perspecves (ergonomics,
producvity, safety),
• mix-and-match modules to facilitate applicaon of the technology and methodologies to the broad needs of the potenal customer
• AI-powered algorithms to allow efficient and meaningful evaluaons according to the customer's needs and objecves.
The impact of Intex will be realized by a technology product and services company that:
• allows wearable providers to boost the success of their developments when introducing new devices to the market
• allows manufacturing end users to more easily adopt wearables by lowering the costs of economic and safety evaluaons prior
to heavy investment in
these new technologies

Overall, InteX will posively impact the manufacturing ecosystem by removing barriers to the adopon of wearable systems that can
increase producvity
and protect worker health. In turn, these developments will impact society by improving job quality and workspace condions for a
broad spectrum of
workers in manufacturing. Thanks to InteX, increased adopon of exoskeleton in the industry will give more females access to
quality jobs on the factory
floor, will extend the longevity of workers aged 45-65 in physically demanding occupaons and lower barriers to job markets
experienced by the physically
challenged. Finally, Intex reduces costs and burdens on health and social services related to workplace injuries
