Robocoast Challenges

Robocoast has several ongoing national and international Robocoast challenge competitions which involve developing modernisation, robotics and artificial intelligence solutions. The Robocoast Challenges is an operational model developed by our network.

The challenges are based on the needs of companies, and solution proposals can be submitted by research groups, universities and companies, as well as private individuals. Are you interested in solving one of the ongoing challenges?

Modernisation Review

The aim of a modernisation review is to map out a company’s modernisation-related challenges, which may relate to a certain production phase or a larger production entity.

Based on the review, a technical expert will prepare a report and make suggestions for further action. Suggestions for further action will be made on a case-by-case basis. Conducting a modernisation review is usually the first step when working with a new client company.

Living Lab testing

When a company wants to test new robotics, IoT or AI solutions in a real-world environment, for example, to support an investment decision, Robocoast can help the company to carry out a Living Lab test where the solution is tested in the company’s production or service process for an agreed period of time. After the test period, a report will be prepared outlining the results.
