The FlexSight experiment is funded by the European Community's project ECHORD++. FlexSight is a research project that involves: the Ro.Co.Co. Laboratory of DIAG (Department of Computer, Control, and Management Engineering Antonio Ruberti at Sapienza University of Rome), which provides expertise in software design and development for robotic perception applications; IT+Robotics, which provides expertise in the industrial robotics domain; and Robox, a company specialized in the development of innovative hardware and software solutions for robotics and control systems.

The FlexSight experiment aims to provide a robotic solution for the “pick&place” class of applications with rigid and deformable objects. The project focuses on building a prototype smart camera – the FlexSight Sensor (FSS) – which can be integrated in the chassis of an existing robot to empower it with detection and localization capabilities. The main objectives of the FlexSight experiment are:
- Enable a robot to perceive a large and widespread class of rigid and deformable objects in an accurate and reliable way, with a particular emphasis on the computational speed of the whole system.
- Implement a prototype of a compact industrial sensor (the FlexSight Sensor, FSS), that integrates all the required sensing and processing needed to run the detection and localization algorithms inside a robust and small chassis.
- Integrate the FSS within a working system that will be tested in several industrial and logistic use cases.
