Together with members of the HCRMI and the RoboHub, we were selected as one of the three finalists of the KUKA Innovation Award 2024!
We are team Collaborative Deliciousness. Our innovation, "The IISYest baker," reimagines artisanal bakeries. It's an intuitive and user-friendly automated solution designed for simplicity. Bakers will be able to replace repetitive manual tasks effortlessly. Our aim is to maintain the exceptional quality artisan bakers deliver, while seamlessly integrating into various craft bakery setups.

The finalists will be presenting the solution at the Hannover Messe 2024 in Germany to adjudicate the final prize.
