Cognitive Robot for Automation of Logistic Processes

Project description


Cognitive Systems and Robotics
robotic system suited for any unloading task of containers
Globalization causes an increasing transport of goods which are shipped in containers and are transferred onto trucks for further transport. The containers are unloaded manually since they are nearly always packed chaotically, the variety of transported goods is high, and time requirements are strict. Due to health risks, human labor is a high cost factor, making automated solutions highly desirable. A robotic system suited for any unloading task of containers requires a high amount of cognitive capabilities. RobLog aims at developing appropriate methods and technologies meeting the requirements to automate logistics processes. The RobLog system will be capable of 3D perception in a challenging scenario with high variability of objects, a dynamic scene and deformable objects.
