Initiated in September 2016 as part of the European project ECHORD ++, the FASTKIT project, led by IRT Jules Verne and the CNRS, was completed in early 2018. The objective of the research project is to develop a versatile and low-cost robotic solution for logistics, using a unique combination of a mobile robot and a cable driven parallel robot.

As a real operational demonstrator, FASTKIT is a mobile cable driven parallel robot designed to meet the emerging needs of manufacturers for automated technical solutions for order picking.
