Multi-robot hygiene monitoring and clean up in food manufacturing facilities


This project is a PhD studentship that we are sponsoring at the University of Lincoln. The project is looking at where robotics and AI could play a role in factory hygiene i.e. factory cleaning operations. It is looking at a number of potential areas including using artificial intelligence to schedule cleaning tasks more effectively, looking at where robots could completely replace human operators and where robots could be used to simplify and improve the job for workers by operating in collaboration with them.
