We invite you to visit our smart factory lab on the 22th November. Different demonstrators of research projects will be presented to give you an overview of the future of robotic – the robotic that considers intelligent cooperation with humans.

  • Creating processes – robot programming made easy
  • Interacting – speech recognition playful
  • Capturing the environment – detecting people and objects
  • Surface coating – printing with robots
  • Ensuring quality – inspecting surfaces, material and geometry
  • Additional topic: Experience 3D printing

Our researchers are looking forward to answering your questions. The event is open to the public from 13:00 to 17:00, with advance registration requested via e-mail: verena.musikar(a)profactor.at

 

 

The OpenLAB tour is part of the project SMART FACTORY HUB. The main objective of the Smart Factory HUB project is to improve framework conditions for innovation in the area of “smart factory”. Therefore we invite SMEs and the public to inform themself of current developements in the factory of the future.

 

This project is funded within the Strategic Economic and Research Program “Innovative Upper Austria 2020” by the Government of Upper Austria.

The Austrian Robotics Workshop and OAGM Workshop will take place from May 9-10, 2019 in Steyr. The workshops are organized by two independent groups. 

  • OAGM addresses image processing, and computer vision
  • ARW (Austrian Robotics Workshop) addresses robots and automation, human-machine collaboration.

The Austrian Robotics Workshop aims to bring together researchers, experts and practitioners working on various robotics topics to discuss current developments and challenges in robotics and its applications. The new edition in Steyr is primarily aimed at robotics competence in the production area. Companies are invited to present their activities. The conference will be complemented by the latest developments, which will be shown in an exhibition.

The OAGM workshop provides a platform for presentation and discussion of research progress as well as current projects with the OAGM/AAPR community.

In addition, the COMARO 2019: Cognitive Manufacturing and Robotics will take place in parallel. It aims to facilitate synergies between research and industry, to highlight the state of the art and beyond state of the art of cognitive systems with emphasis on robotics and computer vision in manufacturing environments and visualize best practice examples.
