Robotic research on an academic level is focused on specific domains such as human-robot interfaces, mobility, manipulation, programming, and sensors. However, the application of this generated knowledge can only be done by combining it for a general purpose. At AIRLab we put this into practice by combining the different research domains of robotics and build knowledge on the intersection of retail, AI and robotics.
AIRLab is always actively monitoring and researching in the field of robotics to see what the future has to bring and contribute to our mission: Redefine retail through technology. We believe that technology can assist associates in the future, making their daily jobs more enjoyable and sustainable.
We’d like you to join us on this mission! To drive the field of robotics research forward, we are organizing the AIRLab Stacking challenge. Within the AIRLab Stacking Challenge students and research teams from all over the world are invited to join us on our research on retail and robotics.
If you are a research team working on robotics, this challenge is for you. Join the AIRLab Stacking Challenge, in collaboration with YES!Delft, and help explore the future of retail. Winning teams will be awarded a cash prize. The focus of the challenge is to share knowledge and deep dive into the tech to better understand the ground principles of robotics.
The AIRLab Delft is the joint industry lab of Ahold Delhaize and the TU Delft, driving innovations at the intersection of retail, AI and robotics. It recently opened a test site where PhD researchers – supported by RoboValley and tech incubator YES!Delft – can work with partners, students and startups to build and test prototypes of robotic solutions.
