FlexCRAFT: Cognitive Robots for Flexible Agro Food Technology
The aim of the FlexCRAFT program is to develop new robotics solutions for agriculture and food processing. In these application domains robots must be able to handle a substantial variation in shape, size and hardness of products, which is still a major challenge for the current robotics technology. We focus on developing generic robot skills for operations like automated harvesting of tomatoes, processing and packaging of meat and the packaging of bags of crisps and boxes of biscuits.The consortium includes the following universities and companies: Wageningen Universiteit & Research, Eindhoven University of Technology, Delft University of Technology, University of Twente, University of Amsterdam, ABB, AgriFoodTech Platform, Aris BV, BluePrint Automation, Cellar Land, Cerescon, Demcon, Festo, GMV, Houdijk Holland, Marel Stork Poultry Processing, Maxon Motor, Priva, Protonic Holland, Rijk Zwaan, and 3DUniversum. FlexCRAFT is funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), 2019 – 2023.
