Graduation: Applying AI for Robotic Automation in the Logistic Domain
Assignment type: Graduation
Start date: February 2021
Assignment duration: 9 months
Educational level: WO
Desired study: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Science, Cognitive Robotics
Language: Dutch or English
The growing e-commerce, increasing globalization, and scarcity of human labor are driving further automation of logistic solutions. Therefore, our customers demand flexible and scalable solutions. Robots can enable that vision, but the challenge is in the complexity of tasks that they have to perform and the variabilities in the environment. To be able to fulfil the growing demand of our customers in the long run, we need to incorporate more intelligence in our robotic solutions. Your assignment will be to spot, implement, and demonstrate the value of AI for one of our robotic solutions.
In the Innovate department (part of R&D), no two days are the same. Our activities are based all over the world and each project is different. We constantly spot and explore new technologies and applications that enable Vanderlande to create valuable and sustainable systems for our customers in Warehousing, Parcels, and Airports.
Tasks / responsibilities
- Spot opportunities to apply AI for a robotic application
- Compare different techniques and choose the one that fits the use case
- Implement and show performance in a demonstrator
- Good knowledge about different AI techniques
- Preferably practical experience in applying AI on a real use case
- The ability to assess the value of AI in a larger context (i.e. a complex logistic system)
