DeLaval VMS wins Coolest Robot Competition!

The DeLaval robotic milker, the Voluntary Milking System (VMS), won the Swedish Coolest Robot Competition organized by Ny Teknik, Sweden’s leading technology and IT publication.

The contest saw six strong finalists pushing competitors to the limit, but 2400 Ny Teknik readers conferred VMS first place prize with 37% of the vote. The other challengers were: Kuka Robocoaster, Rotundus, Artis zeego, ABB Flexpicker and IRB 7600. 

According to Ny Teknik’s Editor in Chief Lars Nilsson, the organizers loved the fact that a robot could make it possible for milk producers to dramatically improve their lifestyle by turning dairy farming into a 9 to 5 work --finally allowing farmers to sleep longer, take time off during the weekends and enjoy family holidays!
