TU Delft Robotics Institute is making a strong effort to (help) robotize small and medium production companies. Through the program “Robots That Work” various projects are being run, amongst which the EU project www.factory-in-a-day.eu. The team consists of researchers on robot vision, robot control, and design, and also includes a spin-off company (Delft Robotics) that will assume the role of system integrator.
The team comprises software and hardware developers and researchers that have previously already developed prototype systems in a very short time within the framework of the Factory-in-a-Day project, such as tomato picking, order picking, and planting of stems in pots. The latter is shown at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFKDuvoBX_E. The team has core developers for ROS Industrial.
