On the 10th of June and 11th of June 2021 PROFACTOR in cooperation with GMAR organized the TIN Tech & Trend Dialogue Meeting on Robotics & Automation in the “House of Engineers” in Vienna at the Austrian Robotics Workshop 2021.

This year’s event focused on sensor technology in robotic systems. Wilfried Kubinger from the FH Technikum Wien emphasized the importance of this technology and the future trends in robotics and automatization. Sebastian Schlund from the TU Wien started the day with a speech about “Democratization of Industrial Cobot Technology” followed by several presentations on mobile robotics.

Stephan Weiss from the AAU Klagenfurt introduced the second part of the first day about sensor technology with a presentation on “Multi-Sensor Fusion for Resilient State Estimation”. He was followed by several other speeches on dynamic sensors for robotic systems.

The first day ended with poster presentations of student papers in the field of robotics systems and an open discussion round called “Meeting High Potentials” which gave the opportunity to all participants to have an information exchange with researchers, developer and representatives of the industry.

The highlights of the second day were the speech given by Christina Olaverri-Monreal form the JKU Linz on “Robots in Intelligent Transportation Systems” and the “Best Paper Awards” which were granted to the best student papers.
