Automated production today represents an important economic sector in German machine and plant engineering. Product-centered control, CPS, networking of virtual and real world, individualized production, and human-robot cooperation unlock numerous potentials: from increased efficiency to the foundation for new business models.

On the first three days of attendance, basic knowledge will be developed based on lectures and numerous practical examples and exercises. This will be deepened in the second half of the course by the own implementation of a robot-supported application.
