Within the research project FLAIROP (Federated Learning for Robot Picking) we are leveraging the potential of federated learning in the context of autonomous robotic picking in a warehouse environment.

FLAIROP is a partnership between Canadian and German organizations. The Canadian project partners focus on object recognition through Deep Learning, Explainable AI, and optimization, while the German partners contribute their expertise in robotics, autonomous grasping through Deep Learning, and data security.

For more information, please visit the partners’ press releases.

This project is supported in part by advisory services and research and development funding support from the National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) in Canada and the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in Germany.
