Research exchange from India to Norway

An Indian PhD student from IIT Kharagpur has been on a research exchange to SINTEF Ocean in the RE-food project working with the Norwegian whitefish supply chain in the iProcess project. In iProcess he worked together with researchers at SINTEF and NTNU with optimizing  the delivery strategies to minimize travel distance as well as the

The impact of supply uncertainty on supply chain planning processes

Four students at NTNU Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering have in 2017-2018 worked with production planning and how improved information flow can support critical decisions. The production planning in terms of mathematical modelling has been addressed by Nicolaas Yelte Serle Kikke, Mats Myhrvold Bjerke and Henrik Raaken Bykvist. An operational research approach is taken

Working together with robots

Three of our researchers in iProcess, Ekrem Misimi, Aleksander Eilertsen and Jonatan S. Dyrstad are visiting the 2017 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS 2017) in Vancouver, Canada, this week. The theme of IROS 2017 is “Friendly People, Friendly Robots”. Robots and humans are becoming increasingly integrated in various application domains.  As

iProcess aims to change the food industry. See our Newsletter

iProcess Newsletter June 2017 The food industry in Norway prioritizes flexible robotic automation as means to be able to cope with the high biological variation in food raw material and to maximize the raw material utilization. Therefore, expectations towards such solutions are high since it is expected that flexible robotic automation will be able to

Case studies

A central task is to understand variations based on use of Big Data from novel rapid and on-line measuring methods for raw materials and product differentiation. TINE has expressed need for measuring different quality parameters of milk used for cheese productions, different parameters in cheese making processes and quality parameters in both fresh and ripen

iProcess – The green shift in food industry

Artificial Eye, brain and hands: Research towards developing new solutions based on "artificial eye, brain and hand" is expected to be a next generation technology that will bring the Norwegian seafood, food and aquaculture industry closer to the consumer and contribute to the circular bioeconomy. In order to achieve the goals for a more sustainable

Robot grasping

One of the greatest challenges in robotics today is the contact processing of a robot with an object and dexterous handling of compliant objects. This is particularly emphasised when it comes to dealing with handling and grasping in harvesting, post harvesting and processing operations of fragile and compliant food raw materials. The food industry is

– iProcess will change the food processing industry

After the iProcess Kickoff, both industrial partners and researchers should know what to expect from one another, according to Dr. Marit Aursand. Expect a change - the iProcess course is set. - The iProcess Kickoff in Trondheim was a very constructive two days, says project manager Dr. Marit Aursand of Sintef Fisheries and Aquaculture. - Yes, we

– iProcess is a groundbreaking project

- If you can find a common core technology. In Dr. Odd Myklebust`s view –what will make iProcess succeed? In the not so distant future, all production will be characterized by greater flexibility and customization, Dr. Odd Myklebust of Sintef and NTNU, expert in innovation management, told the participants at the iProcess Kick off meeting,
