The increasing automation of dangerous, tedious and repetitive tasks is a symbol of technological progress at the service of man and bearer of productivity and competitiveness. In France, as in Western Europe, the sustainability of an industrial site is conditioned to its high productivity and the flexibility and scalability of its production tool in a context of globalized market with strong competition and whose needs change rapidly. The objective of this Labcom project aims to develop new machine learning and computer vision methods to create within 3 years flexible, adaptable, autonomous robotized PICKING / KITTING tools able to guarantee high productivity and manage ultra-flexibility required in many industrial applications.
