ODIN - Open-Digital-Industrial and Networking pilot lines using modular components for scalable production

ODIN project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 101017141.

The project consortium involves fifteen partners from industrial end users, technology providers and research institutions.

ODIN will bring technology from the latest groundbreaking research in the fields of:

  • Collaboration among robots and human-robot collaborative workplaces.
  • autonomous robotics and AI-based task planning.
  • mobile robots and reconfigurable tooling,
  • Digital Twins and Virtual Commissioning and
  • Service-Oriented Robotics Integration and Communication Architectures.

To strengthen the EU production companies' trust in utilizing advanced robotics, the vision of ODIN is:

"to demonstrate that novel robot-based production systems are not only technically feasible but also efficient and sustainable for immediate introduction at the shopfloor".


ODIN has set out the following objectives that will be used to carry out the vision described above:

  1. Enabling the introduction of mobile, autonomous, environmentally aware and collaborative robotics in industrial settings.
  2. Creating digital validation tools for these robotics systems to allow scalability with minimum complexity and integration risks.
  3. Commercializing an advanced robotics integration platform enable to engage robotics design and development stage with normal production conditions.
  4. Deploying full-scale demonstrators in different production sectors to serve as a token of the industrial-grade performance of ODIN production systems.
  5. Create an innovation ecosystem to enable the sustainability of open Pilot Lines involving robotics application stakeholders and inspiring further deployments.

Use Cases:
The project targets three different production domains (White Goods, Automotive and Aeronautics), each one manifesting a diversified set of performance requirements:

  • White Goods: Ability to reprogram/reconfigure a robot for a new product variant: a) integrating new processes b) teaching new interaction schemes with humans and c) replicating the solution to similar cases with minimum cost/effort.
  • Aeronautics: Ability to easily reprogram/reconfigure a robot for new tasks that may combine autonomous mobility, manipulation or a combination of both.
  • Automotive: Mobility of robots –being able to move between stations and perform different types of processes. Assisting humans in high payload manipulation.
