Machine learning bin-picking robot


Prodrive Technologies is a developer and manufacturer of world-class electronics. It comprises over 1300 employees and is one of the fastest growing companies in Europe. Our organization is mostly based on two groups: Development and Operations. The Development department is oriented at developing first-class electronic, mechanic and software solutions. The operations department is responsible for production, assembly, testing and life-cycle-management of electronic products and systems in the range of 1 to more than a million pieces per year.

Recently, Prodrive has developed AGVs to support factory logistic automation. AGVs are vehicles which autonomously transport goods (e.g. boxes with materials). AGVs are used within a production and warehouse environment for logistic purposes (i.e. goods flow). Our first prototypes are already operating in our production facilities. Currently we are improving these prototypes to market-ready products. 


Robots used throughout the manufacturing industry are capable of performing complex tasks with extreme accuracy. These kind of robots usually require complex software scripts involving a lot of fine-tuning for even the most basic tasks. An example of such robot is Prodrive’s self-developed vision controlled bin-picking robot, which picks and sorts-out odd-shaped objects.

Using the most recent developments on machine-learning, the student first has to conduct research in machine learning techniques that are capable of learning the robot to pick and sort-out new kinds of objects. An example of such technique could be deep reinforcement learning. Subsequently, the student implements this technique in Prodrive’s own robotics platform as a prove-of-concept with the goal to simplify and speed up the programming of robots.


  • Pre-study of feasible machine learning techniques for vision controlled robots;
  • Implementation of chosen technique;
  • Tests to verify the implementation.


Important note: all our graduation assignments are dependent on time. Please see them as an example of the many great things you can do at Prodrive Technologies. If you have the same passion for technology as we do, we always have an assignment for you!


Benefits as a student

Next to the benefits which are true for every Prodriver that are listed below, some special benefits must be highlighted for students. First of all you will be treated as a real Prodriver. Your opinion and ideas will be heard and treated as full. Next to this you will get the chance to work with colleagues with a very high level of knowledge in their field and get the chance to use our world class lab and production facilities for your graduation assignment.
