RoboHub Eindhoven also does a certain amount of projects for companies. For example starting 2nd years projects or even writing software and making algorithms to actually implement in products. Find it all out below.
F3 Design vision system
F3 design is a company specialized in smart process optimization through automation of internal pallet transport, pallet handling and, pallet packaging. Because of our close connection with the company we have found a nice project to help them with a new field in automation: Artificial intelligence and vision.
We have used our expertise gained by tackling the challenges of the Robocup@work to help F3 Design. We have re-used some of our software from SUII and made a recognition algorithm to work with the objects that they wanted to recognize. The company prefers to not share the details of the project case at the moment because it is part of an ongoing R&D project, but this does not mean that we will share the knowledge gained during this challenge and apply it in our future projects.
Vanderlande Turtle bot Auto Charging
For one of our partners Vanderlande, we have made an automatic charging station for Turtlebots which they use to verify and test their fleet manager software. This was a project built and done by a group of 2nd year engineering students guided by some of our senior team members. There has been made small improvements to this test setup so it can be assembled and integrated in a easier way. Vanderlande used and made multiple Auto Charging stations for their test setup designed by RoboHub Eindhoven.
ICT-bot is a small, cheap, easy to build, easy to program robot that RoboHub Eindhoven has developed for students of the Fontys ICT department. The goal was to make a simple robot for new students to learn how to program. It equipped with a breadboard and it is compatible with an Arduino and a Raspberry pi. The robot has two continuous rotation servos to drive the wheels. Furthermore it is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor and a line detection module to program the robot in such a way that it can follow a line or that it can avoid objects in it’s path. At last it has a mechanical Lego interface in order to build your own creation from Lego (or similar) on top of the ICT-bot.
