CustomPacker More Human-Friendly


TU Muenchen has teamed with industrial facilities to create robots that will help to bundle items in warehouses in a more efficient manner. The TUM CustomPacker project's goal is to make the robot flexible enough for various types of products as well as create a safe human-robot relationship. While the heavy lifting will go to the service bot, humans will work on the lighter parts. The project began in July and will continue until sometime in 2013.
