NewCold sponsors RoboHub Eindhoven

NewCold is a proud sponsor of RoboHub Eindhoven, a team of motivated students and professionals that are working together to discover new solutions for robotic systems. Started as a Fontys centre of expertise project, RoboHub challenges itself to find creative ways to bring robotics to the next step. RoboHub wants to share its knowledge with other motivated people, therefore they work with companies that want to support them and their technology.This July 2019, they competed in the RoboCup@Work league as part of the RoboCup 2019 in Sydney, Australia. Be sure to check out RoboHub Eindhoven’s LinkedIn page to stay up-to-date on their achievements!

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.
