The project ‘Robotics and flexible automation of food product packaging’ known as ‘PicknPack’ is a project of 4 years duration which holds a total budget of EUR 11,88Millon and an European Union contribution of 8,76Millon. It is coordinated by the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands and the consortium is made up of 14 partners from 9 different countries, including Tecnalia from the Division of Industry and Transport. PicknPack began on November, 2012 to provide the European food industry the benefits of flexible production, offering the advantage of reducing costs by increasing safety and hygiene in the packaging of its products by combining the unique ability to adapt to each product and lot size. In PicknPack 3 main modules that work in close cooperation are developed: a sensor module for evaluating the quality of the product, a robotic handling module guided by machine vision and an adaptive packaging [...]
