Robothon award ceremony at automatica in Munich, Germany

ReconCycle was a technical sponsor of the Robothon competition organized by Technical University of Munich. Inspired by this project, Robothon brings together roboticists from around the world to create robotic manipulation skills for autonomous handling of electronic waste. The teams were given four weeks to solve a specially designed task board, which includes operations typical for electronic waste recycling. It is worth to mention that prof. Ude (the lead of the ReconCycle project consortium) was part of jury committee in 2023.

The award ceremony was held on June 29th, 2023, at the automatica trade fair in Munich, Germany. Congratulations to the winner, team RoboPig from Technical University of Applied Sciences, Würzburg-Schweinfurt, Germany.
