PickClothBot - Robot for sorting dirty laundry.
The PickClothBot is able to sort dirty laundry automatically. The system is mainly used in laundries, hospitals or care facilities. It relieves employees of monotonous tasks and makes a major contribution to occupational safety, since employees no longer come into contact with contaminated laundry during the necessary sorting process.

The soiled laundry is brought to the robot on a feeder. The robot has a 3D camera and can recognize and grip individual pieces of laundry using 3D image processing algorithms. A data scanner is able to read information from the individual laundry items, such as color, laundry temperature or other data. The robot then sorts the laundry items according to their properties into different boxes on discharge conveyors, from where the laundry can then be washed according to type.
