THE ROBLOG DEMONSTRATORS
The Advanced Demonstrator is a flexible system capable of unloading all kinds of goods found in a container: advanced-object recognition techniques provide for fast detection and grasping of rigid objects known by the system (e.g. boxes and barrels), while on-line grasp planning techniques can be triggered for the grasping of unknown or flexible objects, using a general purpose compliant gripper.
The Industrial Demonstrator focuses on the autonomous and safe unloading of heavy sack-shaped goods, specifically testing with coffee sacks: the newly developed kinematic is capable of unloading heavy (up to 75kg) and deformable objects (coffee/cocoa bags), while reaching the full workspace of the container. Cost-efficiency and industry compliant standards are benchmarked, with the goal of automating repetitive and anti-ergonomic work regularly performed by human labor.
