Amazon Picking Challenge 2016

Despite some technical challenges, we had a great time at the Amazon Picking Challenge 2016. Our team, Applied Robotics, ended 12th in both the stowing and picking challenge. We had a lot of interesting discussions with both the other participating teams and visitors. We hope to participate again next year at RoboCup 2017 in Nagoya, Japan.

Upcoming events

  • We will attend RoboBusiness Europe ( in Odense, Denmark. June 1st-3rd) to demonstrate our Amazon Picking Challenge setup and compete against Team Delft to assess our progress.
  • Many companies involved in RaPiDo will be exhibiting at the Vision, Robotics & Mechatronics 2016 tradefair ( Veldhoven, The Netherlands, June 1st-2nd ), so it is definately worth a visit!
  • Our paper “Point Pair Feature based Object Detection for Random Bin Picking” will presented at the 13th Conference on Computer and Robot Vision (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada) on June 2nd.
  • EAVISE, the Embedded Artificially Intelligent VISion Engineering research group of KU Leuven, organizes
    AAA Vision 2016 on September 13th 2016, a symposium where academic and industrial vision & AI partners
    meet. The goal is to facilitate technology transfer of newly developed intelligent computer vision algorithms
    towards innovative industrial applications.

    Two recent state-of-the-art intelligent vision applications are presented: random bin picking for industrial
    robots and autonomous navigation of drones. Results of recent research projects will be presented, as well
    as success stories of their introduction into real industrial applications.

    A large collection of astounding demos from academic researchers and innovative companies will show the
    potential of the newest developments in image processing and artificial intelligence technology.
