This Tour covers the use of intelligent, robust robots as part of future smart factories. The tour comprises three segments covering the central topics of communication between heterogeneous systems, adaptive industrial robotics, and autonomous mobile robotics for in-factory logistics.
Within the first day, we discuss how to establish communication between heterogeneous systems. We explore the usage of OPC UA and other protocols in modern industrial scenarios. A practical application visit concludes the day. The second day addresses industrial robots in dynamic environments. You will learn and apply methods for online path planning, how to deal with uncertain sensor data, and get a glimpse on machine learning for robotic behavior generation. The third day introduces autonomous mobile multi-robot systems as seen in the RoboCup Logistics League. You will learn to design and implement behavior and task execution software, from state machines to knowledge-based reasoning systems
