Workshop  /  March 21, 2019, 8.30 a.m. to 10.00 a.m.

Fraunhofer IFF at ERF 2019: Topic Group Industrial Robotics

This workshop focuses on the needs of the members of the TG-Industrial Robotics. This includes presentations from robotics end-users and industry about their needs (e.g. things researchers should focus on), and gives the research side a brief opportunity present new work that addresses industrial challenges.

This year we will also feature the two new DIH projects on agile manufacturing to hear how they will be run, and what industrial partners can expect from them. We will conclude with a discussion and feedback session, both to allow the DIH to get audience feedback and for the TG members to offer feedback on prioritizing goals and thinking about TG activities for 2019.
