Pametni robot za vizualno pregledovanje kakovosti in sortiranje kapsul

V podjetju SENSUM smo začeli z aktivnostmi na RRI projektu RoboKap, katerega namen je razvoj nove, inovativne in prilagodljive naprave, ki bo znala pregledovati kakovost farmacevtskih kapsul različnih vrst ter jih sortirati med ustrezne in neustrezne. Rezultat projekta bo pametni robot, ki bo znal, podobno kot človek, opazovati (oči nadomestimo s kamerami), se učiti in presojati (možgane nadomestimo z umetno inteligenco) ter sortirati izdelke glede na njihovo kakovost (roke nadomestimo z mehanskimi manipulatorji). Naprava bo nadomestila nezanesljivo človeško pregledovanje kapsul, njena agilnost in prilagodljivost pa bo omogočala hitro in enostavno zmožnost uporabe naprave za najrazličnejše tipe kapsul v proizvodnji, ter optimizacijo proizvodnje in procesnih podatkov. Naložbo razvoja sofinancirata Republika Slovenija in Evropska unija iz Evropskega sklada za regionalni razvoj v višini €489.472,20:
