Robotics at the RWTH Aachen University

Intelligent machines constantly immerse every aspect of professional and private life. Experts expect an exponential increase in the influence of such machines on everyday life in the coming years. The extent of the changes will strongly influence the way organisations and individuals do their daily work.

While robotic automation is increasingly finding its way into large, modern production facilities, small and medium-sized enterprises are in particular need to find the right strategies to take advantages of machine intelligence, for automation and integration into existing processes.

With seminars such as Roadmap2Automation, Scrum, Introduction to Sensor Technology and Smart Cognition, competencies for robotics beginners, technical experts and managers are imparted. The seminars are under the scientific direction of the Institute of Gear Technology, Machine Dynamics and Robotics at RWTH Aachen University and conducted by staff members of the institute.
