The Cybernetics Lab at the Hannover Messe

Whether human-machine collaboration or machine learning: The use of artificial intelligence is playing an increasingly important role in industry. Accordingly, it was the top topic at this year's Hannover Messe, where the Cybernetics Lab, together with its cooperation partners, provided an outlook on the interaction between man and machine, for example in self-learning workplaces. Together with the Visual Computing Institute and the Cluster of Excellence "Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries" of the RWTH Aachen University, the IMA presented its current research on the application of artificial intelligence in production systems:

The "Cense 2.0" demonstrator, a six-axis industrial robot that independently learns and plays the game of skill "hot wire" using artificial intelligence, as well as the mobile robot platform TORsten, developed from a research cooperation between the IfU and Torwegge Intralogistics GmbH & Co. KG. The driverless transport system navigates autonomously in floor shop space and autonomously plans its routes, as shown at the joint booth of the industry network for mechanical engineering in the region of Ostwestfalen-Lippe (OWL).

An autonomously navigating Robotino, which was presented together with the project partner Festo AG in the context of the project "ARIZ". The mobile robot has a laser scanner and a monocular camera to implement an autonomous material flow for the Festo Bionic Workplace.
