Doroti Pack, a Hungarian packaging machine specialist wants to improve the working conditions for operators of packing line automation systems of chicken wings significantly. ImProWings is the name of this S3Food funded project. Doroti Pack aims to achieve several goals in one by developing a new packing line automation system. In addition to improving the working conditions for the operators, Doroti Pack wants to reduce energy consumption by 30% and cut 20% off packing costs.
Working with applied research partner Bay Zoltán Nonprofit Ltd, Doroti will draw on computer vision software and AI to determine the position and orientation of chicken wings on the line. This data will then be applied to coordinate a robotic gripper arm, which will place the wings in trays. The smart solution will enable fast, hygienic and high-quality packing with minimal health risk for operators. Industrial trials will ensure the solution’s stability.
