Motivation and Objectives:
Perception is one of the key technologies for enabling flexible production processes, such as pick and place, machine tending, assembly, and quality testing. Applied AI allows to solve complex automation problems as data and model-driven machine learning approaches reduce manual parameterization effort significantly.
The combination of machine learning and classical methods provide reliability, robustness and flexibility to fulfill the requirements in lab automation, agile production, and logistics. These solutions increase the flexibility making the return-on-invest much easier to demonstrate, especially for SMEs.
Industrial use cases are elaborated in an interactive session with the attendees. The attendees are guided by key statements. The goal is to create synergies and potential collaborations to facilitate the introduction of AI-driven perception into novel robotic applications.
