ITII Vernon and Mecavenir: educational robotics to train the managers and engineers of tomorrow

use case

Cobots at the service of higher education

ITII Vernon and Mécavenir wanted a solution to train the future executives and engineers of the industrial field: objective achieved with the fleets of Niryo collaborative robots! A competition is organized each year within the CFAI, for Mechanical and Production Engineering (MP) training. This competition combines discovery, creativity and simulation.

The process in a nutshell:

Cas usage TII Normandie et Mecavenir


The apprentices are first made aware of the technical capabilities of the robot, software and hardware.

The students are then invited to conceptualize a set allowing the routing of the elements, the assembly, as well as the quality control.

Finally, the participants have the opportunity to prototype their own production line and operate it.

Why opting for collaborative robotics?

  • The available ecosystem and its open source flexibility, allowing to deploy a production and test lines quickly.
  • The compactness of the robots, which can be stored in large numbers and then handled without difficulty within the workshops.
  • The cost of the fleet of collaborative robots, allowing each student to be able to handle a robot comfortably and safely.

Our engineering school has chosen to invest in 20 Niryo robots in order to allow each apprentice to program his own. They are used for different lessons such as mechanics, mathematics, programming of embedded systems, and of course robotics. Our purchase has allowed, after only one year of use, to train more than 100 apprentices!
