Agricultural workplaces are a prototypical example of unstructured and variant environments, offering a novel challenge to robotic research and automation. In this paper, a robot prototype is presented for white asparagus harvesting. White asparagus... Read More about Design of an advanced prototype robot for white asparagus harvesting.

Towards a learning curve theory for batch production (2008)
Conference Proceeding
Tourassis, V. D., Chatzimichali, A. P., Chatzimichali, A., & Tourassis, V. (2008). Towards a learning curve theory for batch production. https://doi.org/10.1109/IEEM.2008.4737890

Consumer attitudes and fashion trends often impose severe constraints in manufacturing. When market needs for varied product designs lead to product competition for a place in the production schedule, batch size and available production time are depr...
