Industrial logistics of the future!
What's it about?
Our team is working on developing a robot named @Work to participate in the RoboCup competition. @Work is an autonomous mobile robot capable of operating independently in an environment. Its task is to navigate to workplaces, detect and sort the objects present there. Predefined objects are also to be picked up and placed in the correct location. The competition features workplaces with varying levels of difficulty, continuously challenging the participants. Therefore, all important topics of modern robotics are addressed, such as dynamic and secure manipulation, autonomous navigation, SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping), computer vision, and state-of-the-art sensor technology.
What are the current goals of the @Work team?
In parallel, we are intensively working on our latest mobile platform. This platform is not only larger but also offers improved performance, enabling us to complete complex tasks faster and more effectively than before. Scaling our hardware poses the challenge of adapting our software accordingly to make optimal use of the additional resources.
Our current agenda includes testing and refining the physical and algorithmic parameters to ensure seamless interaction between the new Igus robotic arm and the platform.
Our software and hardware teams are working hand in hand to maximize the robot’s precision and efficiency. Ultimately, we aim to shine not only in future competitions but also to demonstrate and expand the applicability of our technology in real-world scenarios.
