Towards Supply Chain Automation
The e-commerce operation of Gall en Gall is growing rapidly. To keep up with the demand, the fulfillment operation has to be improved and expanded in the coming years. The main objective of Gall is to increase the throughput capacity of the order-pick and packaging process in a cost efficient way, by finding the right a combination of process and technology.
Robotics supported archaeological field research system development
The team will be tasked with developing a robotic system to support archaeologists in field research activities. The system should be a cost effective supporting system to alleviate the work of the archaeologist by automating the search of an area for potential cultural items including the use of sensors for field reconnaissance
ASML makes lithography machines for chip patterning. The litho-process remained unchanged for the last 40 years: photo-resist is patterned by the light. Let us investigate if this can be done more efficient by using the light to pattern the functional material (e.g. Copper) directly. It would be a revolution at nanometer-scale.
Artificial Intelligence in Vertical Farming
hrough experience, knowledge and thinking different, we’ve discovered that the best systems are built with a focus on providing what’s best for the plant and empowering the grower to achieve that every day. With this plant-centred approach, we’ve developed and designed the AVF+ line of vertical farms. The objective is to gain insight into whether our AFV Compact system should be equipped with AI and/or machine learning software and what the benefits could be
Husky Intelligent Fridges
Refrigeration has become an essential part of our lives and infrastructure, enabling our fresh food chains. With new food concepts like Robotic Kitchens, Micro Markets, Vertical Farming, and 3D Food Printing, the market is ready for innovations like our Intelligent Fridges. Our Intelligent Fridge knows what products are in it and who is taking what, to provide an unattended 24x7 fresh-food retailing experience. For the next generation refrigerator there are various new research topics like; RFID, Camera Vision, Weight, Energy Consumption, etc. Based on the skills of the team we are looking forward to designing and building a new innovative feature.
Crane control of the future
Today a ship mounted crane is controlled by an operator from a cabin slewing with the crane, a wireless walk-around-box anywhere within reach of the receiver or from the bridge. Augmented reality, sensor and simulation techniques, drones, big data and other technical developments allow crane control from anywhere on the ship or
anywhere at the globe with improved sight, increased safety and efficiency, during installation of for example offshore wind turbines.
Now It is up to you how this near future looks like. Several tools including a HoloLens are made available for this project.
El Mandadero, a mobile robotics project
NXP proposes creating a mobile robotics development platform that takes the form of a base drive platform with a modular payload on top. The first version, called El Mandadero, includes an upper payload consisting of four insulated lockable compartments configured to act as a last-mile grocery delivery rover. The intent is to allow developers, researchers, universities and interested parties to have a cost-effective physical platform on which to further test various compute, perception engines, electronic sensors, networking, propulsion drive and electromechanical components
Imagine immersing in VR so completely that you feel it. Ethereal offers just that: the chance to physically interact fully with VR worlds. Your body becomes the input device. Sports, fitness, social engagement, gaming, competition, fantasy escape : all blend with media, creating entirely new experiences while restoring our health.
