ReGCell

IntelligentSystems   RoboticsAutomation

ReGCell is an abbreviation for “Recycling of Photovoltatic-Cells”. As part of the RegCell cooperation network, the Robotics Laboratory (camra-laboratory) at Aschaffenburg UAS is developing concepts for automated disassembly of photovoltaic cells. For more information please contact Prof. Dr.-Ing. Czinki.


ForTeRob

IntelligentSystems   RoboticsAutomation

The ForTeRob project focuses on a combination of innovative force control approaches and telematics-based support for end users. In the project, a novel force control strategy called "FineForce" was developed. This improves the force control performance of standard industrial robots. For more information please contact Prof. Dr.-Ing. Czinki or Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bruhm.


MeSys Motion Simulator

IntelligentSystems   RoboticsAutomation

The Laboratory for Mechatronic Systems (MeSys-Laboratory) of the Aschaffenburg UAS is currently building a full-motion 6-axis motion simulator, which is used for the realistic representation of vehicle and aircraft movements. For more information please contact Prof. Dr.-Ing. Czinki.


Excavator Robot

IntelligentSystems   RoboticsAutomation

The Laboratory for Mechatronic Systems (MeSys-Laboratory) at the Aschaffenburg UAS has used the findings from the ETARA cooperation project to develop a mobile excavator that can be operated either partially - or fully autonomously. For more information please contact Prof. Dr.-Ing. Czinki.


Robot based Industry 4.0 Assembly Line

IntelligentSystems   RoboticsAutomation

During the project the Robotics Laboratory (camra-laboratory) at Aschaffenburg UAS has developed a highly modular, robot-based Industry 4.0 assembly system. This is going to be supplemented with human robot interaction in a subsequent step. For more information please contact Prof. Dr.-Ing. Czinki.


AI-based Gripping Technology

IntelligentSystems   RoboticsAutomation

The Robotics Laboratory (camra-laboratory) at the Aschaffenburg UAS has developed several anthorpomorphic robot hands. The control system, which has so far been realised in the classical way, is currently being expanded to include elements of artificial intelligence. For more information please contact Prof. Dr.-Ing. Czinki.
