Our main motivation is to build a versatile, easy-to-use and low-cost system. To demonstrate this and the possibilities of scaling up, we will carry out proof of concept in realistic environments (TRL 6) in three different applications and sectors: fabric handling for lingerie manufacturing, technical fiber handling for composite panels for the automotive industry, plastic pouches handling for the packaging in food industry. As a Research and Innovation Action MERGING is driven by user requirements. The following functions are direct outcome of these industrial requirements mapped to MERGING specific objectives as shown in the next table
