The collaborative robotics or cobots lab is the first of three labs to be launched statewide and is in response to VU's efforts to develop training and education to support Industry 4.0 technology statewide. The collaborative robotics lab has been made possible through Lilly Endowment’s Charting the Future for Indiana’s Colleges and Universities grant funding. VU’s $8 million “Developing a Workforce Ecosystem for Industry 4.0 in Indiana” grant brings together innovative solutions and technology to accelerate key technical skills in Indiana’s advanced manufacturing and logistics workforce.
