The following AIRE AI and Robotics Centre demo projects were selected today.
In partnership with businesses and researchers, they will tackle the following challenges using robotics and artificial intelligence solutions.
- Intelligent robotic assembly workstation for the production of bag filters at Vado Filters OÜ, project partner digitalisation expert Jüri Riives, IMECC.
- AI solution for automation of quotations in Print Best OÜ, project partner AI expert Martin Rebane, UT/Tartu Science Park.
- Study of the feasibility of an AI-based optimisation model for production processes based on Scandinor’s new unplanned production unit at Scandinor OÜ, project partner researcher and engineer Tõnis Raamets, TalTech.
The companies participating in this year’s round have all also undergone AIRE’s Artificial Intelligence or Robotisation Feasibility Assessment service, to identify the areas of their processes where digitisation would deliver the greatest efficiency gains.
AIRE Advisory Board members Jukka Patrikainen and Andres Sutt also provided the companies with expert advice on how to carry out their projects. Last season, we launched 17 demo projects in collaboration between companies and researchers. The call is open all year round – projects are launched 3-4 times a year.
AIRE’s demo projects service allows manufacturing companies to test AI and robotics technologies before investing, encouraging further investment in digital technologies. Following a call for ideas, the AIRE team will provide support to selected demonstration projects using AI and enabling technologies (including robotics).
The AIRE Artificial Intelligence and Robotics Hub (EDIH) is co-funded by the European Union through the European Digital Innovation Hubs programme (project number 101083677) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications.
