The 11 partners of HR-Recycler met in Barcelona, Spain for their 3rd plenary meeting.

The HR-Recycler partners were hosted in Barcelona, Spain by partner Institute for BioEngineering of Catalonia (IBEC) for their 3rd plenary meeting. Among the many decisions that had to be made, the most important of them related to the following topics:

  • The need to clarify user needs associated with the whole procedure and how this important input will be elucidated.
  • What will be the final spatial configuration of all the hardware, i.e. robotic equipment, cameras, etc. participating in the project both on factory level and on cell level perception.
  • Finalizing a capturing framework which will provide all the necessary details regarding the video capturing process taking place at each end user’s premises allowing technical partners CERTH and SDK to train their Deep Learning modules.
