B/S/H SmartHome Robotics "Laundry Care" Challenge

We at B/S/H Innovative often ask ourselves the question "How can Smart Robotics support humanity?"
For example, how could a robot help me hang up my laundry?
Our findings show that hanging is one of the most unpopular tasks in the laundry care process. In times of Smart Robotic systems, that does not have to be anymore! Together with YOU, we want to create the innovation that ends this step.

Initial Challenge - Concept Ideas

What do we expect?

Develop a new robot or automation concept ideas, that takes over parts of the laundry process, automates certain steps, or even addresses the full process!

Your concept ideas can be submitted as:

  • A sketch (Photoshop or even hand painted sketches)
  • A Mindstorms® robot (pictures or video)
  • A piece of code 
  • A detailed concept description (Text supplemented by pictures or references)
  • A model (CAD-file, rendered pictures)
  • A video or pitch deck (MP4 or comparable, PowerPoint)

Everything is allowed! Choose your weapons!



Some food for thought for you:

  • How can laundry be removed from the washing machine?
  • How does laundry have to be positioned so that it can be hung up afterwards?
  • How should the laundry be sorted?
  • Where and how is the laundry placed to be dried at the end? Or does it have to be put into a dryer?

The developed robotic solution should be as simple and as cheap as possible. The system is at best a mobile or portable solution.


What do we offer?

Through the collaborative approach of RoboPORT, we want to give interdisciplinary teams the opportunity to use their creativity in a real robotics project in cooperation with BSH. Find and be part of an awesome and highly skilled team to develop your own robot!
