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 “Beyond Smart Robots” workshop is jointly organized by PROFACTOR and TU Wien during European Robotics Forum (ERF2018), the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe, held in Tampere, Finland, on 15 March 2018.

 

Beyond Smart Robots: Enabling Technologies for True Non-Expert Teaching

In conjunction with the European Robotics Forum 2018, Tampere, Finland, March 13-15, 2018

Aim and Scope

Although academic research demonstrated numerous ways to easily program robots, most of them have not become industrial reality yet. Current industrial robots are still difficult to program, leading to high changeover times when new products are introduced. This is especially challenging considering new trends like high product variants and low lot sizes. In order to compete with global markets, the factories of tomorrow have to close this gap soon.

At the same time, new technologies arising from other scientific branches bring disruptive changes with unexpected opportunities. For example, recent advances in Deep Learning endow robots with “human-level” cognitive capabilities. In some domains, they have even surpassed human skills, e.g. image classification or strategic games. Augmented Reality, as another example, has grown up from the infancy and is a major interaction technology used in gaming industry and modern mobile phones.

Target Audience and Topics

This workshop aims to find synergies between different fields of science to aid in the application area of non-experts robot teaching for industrial processes. In order to limit the high number of possible processes, the focus is on assembly.

The following topics are of interest (but not limited to):

  • Enabling technologies for teaching robots
  • AI / Deep Learning for robots
  • Tools and components that aid in teaching robots
  • Augmented reality for teaching robots
  • User interaction modules

The workshop will bring together researchers from relevant disciplines to exchange ideas and results towards the goal of boosting learning capabilities of robotics in the factory of the future. The workshop is structured with invited talks that provide both the industrial and academic perspective on the field of teaching robots for industrial environments. The talks present the challenges, new research opportunities and some success stories in this field. The talks are structured with time for questions and interactions to engage the audience and consolidate their point of view.

Invited Talks

  • Thomas Madsen Almdal, Danish Technological Institute
  • Walter Wohlkinger, Blue Danube Robotics
  • Jacek Malec, Lund University
  • Kathleen Delang, Fraunhofer IWU
  • Mildred Puerto Coy, Tecnalia

Important Dates

Workshop: 15 March 2018, 08:30 – 10:00 (Maestro, Tampere Hall, Tampere, Finland)
