UdeS at the Core of the First Canadian Collaborative Robotics Program
Reduce the labour shortage while fostering competitiveness in the manufacturing sector: that is the aim of the new training program Enabling Technologies for Collaborative Robotics in Manufacturing (CoRoM), spearheaded by the Université de Sherbrooke, the École de technologie supérieure, and the Université Laval.
The program aims to train skilled new recruits that will be able to improve collaboration between robots, humans, and machines, and therefore free employees from performing tasks with no added value.
With a $3.5M grant over six years, CoRoM offers an interdisciplinary path that includes industrial internships to Master’s and Ph.D. students.
Six industrial partners have joined the endeavour, including three Sherbrooke companies – Exonetic, Merkur, and SECM-GT International.
