Competing in an international robotics challenge
The RoboCup is an international organisation working to promote robotics and AI research, by offering a publicly appealing, but formidable challenge. RoboCup@Work, in which the RoboHub Eindhoven team will be participating, is the newest league of the competition and targets the use of robots in the logistics and industrial sectors.
Their newest robot, Sui2 (or Suii) is an autonomous driving machine with an industrial collaborative robot arm on top. It can navigate an unknown, dynamic environment using laser scanners, a robotic arm with a 3D camera system and Deep Learning algorithm YOLO for object recognition.
NewCold and Robotics
NewCold uses robotics in its state-of-the-art cold storages. The cold storages are characterized by a very high degree of automation with, for example, intelligent stacker cranes which take care of in- and outbound pallet storage in the highbay warehouses. Another example is the automatic destacking robot which destacks the fully loaded pallets after arrival in the Automatic Truck Unloading System at the docks. NewCold is happy to support students who are eager to learn and who like to investigate where the limits of robot applicability lie in today’s business.
