PICK-PLACE focuses on flexible, safe and dependable robotic part-handling in industrial environments. The project proposes a combination of human and robot capabilities in order to achieve this efficient hybrid pick-and-place / pick-and-package solution. It includes dynamic package configuration, flexible grasping strategies using an innovative multifunctional gripper, robust environment perception and mechanisms and strategies for human-robot collaboration.
On April 23, Friday, members of the PICK-PLACE consortium will offer a free of charge, open Webinar under the title Robot-based order preparation in logistics: Technological overview.
The content of the Webinar is oriented to both industrial and scientific or academic publics. The first part will cover current order preparation – needs and challenges -, as well as the presentation of the two scenarios developed within the project. The second part will present some of the technological results achieved – in the fields of reactive grasping, human-aware planning, and artificial intelligence for picking operations -. After the presentations, attendants will have the opportunity to share their own experience in logistics automation, and to ask any question that may arise. Read more
Every day thousands of spare parts of different sizes, shapes, and weights are delivered to dealers from logistic warehouses. Every dealer can choose and order parts in any combination. The possibility of automatization in a warehouse is reduced because of this non-standard situation.
Therefore, manual handling is used widely in shipment preparation operations. Unfortunately, manual operations are unefficient and prone to shipment mistakes. At TOFAŞ, we aim at reducing these factors by the results obtained in PICK-PLACE project. Read more
