AIRLab invites you to the Cleaning Bot Challenge Finals Event

Ahold Delhaize's AI for Retail (AIR) Lab is inviting you for the Grande Finale of the AIRLab Cleaning Bot Challenge

Robotic innovations are flourishing worldwide. With the AIRLab Cleaning Bot Challenge, bright innovative entrepreneurs from all over the world get the chance to showcase their autonomous cleaning robots.

The Challenge

The cleaning process in supermarkets is a time- and labour consuming activity. However, a clean store is more important than ever. Therefore, we sought for the most innovative solutions that can help our employees and make the cleaning process better and more efficient.  

Finals Event

During the Finals Event, innovative companies will showcase and pitch their autonomous cleaning robots. After the pitches, an expert jury will deliberate. Two potential prizes could be granted:  

  • One company will be selected to have their autonomous cleaning robot show its potential in a large supermarket and get the chance to attain a worldwide customer.
  • The second option is that a company can get the chance to further co-develop the autonomous cleaning process in supermarkets with AIRLab. 

During the jury's deliberation, we will enable some networking opportunities, so that you can get to know all the innovative companies and the other attendees of the event.

Who is behind this project?

AIRLab Delft is the joint industry lab of Ahold Delhaize and the TU Delft, driving innovations at the intersection of retail, AI and robotics. It recently opened a test site where researchers - supported by RoboValley and tech incubator YES!Delft - can work with partners, students, startups and other companies to build and test prototypes of robotic solutions.
