Learn how to control mobile robotic systems in the intralogistic environment. You will work directly with the software architecture allowing robots to freely navigate a room and to autonomously execute material flow tasks. You will also get to know the open source project Robot Operating System (ROS).
▶ Hardware and software concepts of mobile robotics including planning of movement
▶ Application of local and global path planning and collision avoidance
▶ Application in flexible material flow systems with the Robot Operating System (ROS)
▶ Environmental perception of mobile robotic systems with various sensor technologies
Group of Participants
You are an engineer or computer scientist from the areas of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science with programming knowledge in C++ and Python.
The increasing variety and short-lived nature of products are two key drivers of using flexible material flow systems in the production area. Aside from fixed transport systems, the past ten years have seen ever more automated guided vehicles (AGV) come into use. Further development towards autonomous mobile robotics systems thus allows free and autonomous decision-making.
The course takes place on five consecutive days and ends with an exam. Course content is developed and consolidated in interactive lectures, group work, presentations and case studies.
