"RWTH transparent"

When RWTH Aachen University invites you to a New Year's reception, looking back on the past year and looking into the future at the same time, you know that there is much to report. But a small humanoid robot from the Cybernetics Lab almost stole the show from the big science. RWTH Rector Ernst Schmachtenberg sent "Pepper", the youngest robotic employee at the Institute for Management Cybernetics e.V. (IfU), back after a brief interposition, back from the stage to his basic attitude and devoted himself to the academic review and outlook.

In addition to honors and awards, highlights such as the inauguration of the cluster production technology on the campus Melaten or 350 million euros in third-party funds, three European research grants and two Humboldt professorships, the RWTH this evening at the end of January not only talked about what they can - they showed it through various pilot projects of their institutes. For example, the Institute for Information Management in Mechanical Engineering (IMA) presented the already well-proven CENSE demonstrator, a six-axis lightweight robot that demonstrated its favorite game "Hot Wire" this evening thanks to its "artificial intelligence". For this project, the New Year's Reception "RWTH transparent" was a test run for the Hannover Messe from April 23 to 27, 2018, where the IMA will be presenting itself for the Cluster of Excellence "Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries".
