Panasonic wins the top spot in a Future Convenience Store Challenge at IREX2019, an International Robot Exhibition 2019
April 01, 2020 | Project
Panasonic R&D Center Singapore (PRDCSG) joined the Nara Institute of Science and Technology, Ritsumeikan University, Panasonic’s Robotics Promotion Office, LS, CNS-IC, IS, and AP to form a NAIST-RITS-Panasonic team and compete in the Future Convenience Store Challenge at IREX2019, one of the world’s largest robot exhibitions.
The Future Convenience Store Challenge at IREX2019 is a stepping stone to the World Robot Summit 2020 slated for October 2020. PRDCSG is responsible for developing camera calibration technology required for the robot to localize its own position and also to precisely locate target objects for its pick-and-place tasks. Having a tough contest against the other 10 strong teams during a 3-day intensive competition, the NAIST-RITS-Panasonic team successfully landed the top spot for stocking and disposing tasks, while obtaining the 2nd position in a ranking for both customer interaction and restroom cleaning tasks.
