Emerging circular biobased barrier solutions

  Multilayer plastic packaging films are commonly used to pack sensitive food products. Their share on the packaging market is increasing as they enable light-weighting and increase resource efficiency in their primary use in comparison to rigid packaging, but they are currently not recyclable. Indeed, high purity fractions are needed for reprocessing and the vast […]

Rossini’s recent advances in the perception layer for collaborative robot control

  The Rossini project aims to develop a collaborative robot platform, with human safety and work quality as a priority. Making it possible for robots to work in proximity to human operators in overlapping space requires solving and guaranteeing a lot of safety measures. Traditionally, industrial robots must be confined in restricted areas away from […]
