A special greeting from Prof. Bruno Siciliano, coordinator of REFILLS: "2017 has started, and so the REFILLS project coordinated by CREATE! Our project aims at designing and deploying versatile modular robotic solutions for supermarkets, to be used for a wide range of logistics processes. Despite the growth of online grocery stores, supermarkets will keep providing customers with the pleasant experience of choosing and touching goods while walking between the shelves. The technology is to be used carefully to increase efficiency: we will focus on smart shelf refilling as a key topic for considerable costs savings. The level of dexterity, flexibility, safety and cost of traditional robots is not sufficient for the scenarios envisioned in REFILLS. Our Consortium includes participants along the whole value chain for developing and adapting new robot techniques and processes, and assuring a strong impact of the project outcomes. The key innovations introduced by REFILLS in the scientific domain include reactive planning for grasping and manipulation, perception‐based reactive control, novel perception technologies, object recognition and localization, semantic mapping for large‐scale environments, manipulation knowledge bases, mechatronics concepts for a reconfigurable fleet of mobile and handling robots. The kick-off meeting will be held in Napoli in three weeks: stay tuned."
