RoboHouse, future of work fieldlab for cognitive robotics
What to find in RoboHouse?
RoboHouse is RoboValley’s fieldlab where manufacturing companies and innovative organisations can discover the possibilities cognitive robotics offer, develop their own applications and test them in an industrial setting.
Why use RoboHouse?
The rapid developments in robotics will have a major impact on many sectors. A few organisations already make use of advanced robots, which apply artificial intelligence, are self-learning and can work autonomously. Machines that interact with their surroundings and can collaborate with people.
These cognitive robotics enable many new applications. Think of robots that can identify and process a variety of unknown objects and that can be deployed for order picking tasks in warehouses. Another example are inspection robots for remote and dangerous areas or production processes where humans and robots work together to solve complex tasks.
Most manufacturing companies are aware of the existence of these intelligent technologies and would like to gain practical experience with them. RoboHouse is the place where you can, in a practical way, learn to understand the potential – and limitations – of these robotics systems. A test facility to work on your own application and a place to train your employees to collaborate with robots.
RoboHouse will open its doors in the spring of 2018. Based on the campus of Delft University of Technology, RoboHouse offers direct access to the research of TU Delft Robotics Institute and industrial partners, such as ABB and Festo.
RoboHouse: discover, develop and test
What can you do in RoboHouse?
Take a tour with your management through RoboHouse or book an inspiring hands-on workshop to understand how your organisation can implement intelligent robotics. Define the processes, products or propositions that will be impacted by robotics.
Create your own advanced robotics application. Follow a course in RoboHouse. We will offer courses on a variety of subjects, for example applying TensorFlow (deep learning) in ROS (open-source Robot Operating System).
Find out how your idea or concept works by using the RoboHouse test centre. We offer various workplaces, well-equipped for different technologies (e.g. vision, grippers, navigation and interaction).
