5 Ways Robotics Are Changing Retail Fulfillment in 2019

Developed for a multinational commercial catering company, Turbo Clean is claimed to automate one of the least loved jobs in the kitchen. Thousands of images of messy food trays with different combinations of tableware were first used to train an algorithm, eventually allowing the system to recognize new patterns independently. When presented with a tray, machine vision detects the contents, labeling the various glasses, plates, and cutlery. Robotic arms with suction capability then remove the items from the tray and deposit them in their assigned container, ready to be sent to a dishwasher.
