International Robot Developer Conference „ROSCon 2013“ to be held in Stuttgart, Germany, May 11-12

08.05.2013
Fraunhofer IPA to host 2nd annual meeting of world wide developer community dedicated to the leading Open Source Robot Operating System ROS
From May 11-12, 2013, „ROSCon 2013“ will be held in Stuttgart, Germany. ROSCon is the international annual meeting of the world wide developer community dedicated to the leading Open Source Robot Operating System ROS. Following the success of the inaugural ROSCon in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA in 2012, this year’s host will be the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA.

The conference will take place at University of Stuttgart Campus (near to Fraunhofer IPA), Pfaffenwaldring 47, D-70569 Stuttgart, Germany.

The two-day program – Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 5.45 p.m. and Sunday, May 12, from 9 a.m. to 6.15 p.m. – will comprise about 35 lectures, in-depth presentations, lightning talks, technical talks and tutorials highlighting different aspects and perspectives of the „Robot Operating System“ ROS. Moreover, twelve international companies and sponsors will display their products and services related to robotics in an exhibition accompanying the conference.

In robotics research, ROS is a widely spread and firmly established open source framework providing a wide range of software tools and components for robotics applications. Due to its importance and popularity, ROS is also about to enter industrial and commercial applications. To accelerate this process Fraunhofer IPA has already held an international workshop on this issue at the institute’s congress center attended by more than hundred researchers and experts with scientific and industrial background, in autumn 2012.

ROSCon 2013 will give you an exclusive glimpse behind the scenes and a fascinating insight into actual and future trends in robotics. You are welcome to be present in the first row when the ROS developer community will discuss their most recent projects and visions.

For more details regarding the conference and its timetable see http://roscon.ros.org/
We are looking forward to meet you – or your colleague – as a correspondent during our conference, to bring you into contact with robotics experts from all over the world and to answer any questions you have.

In case you are not able to attend yourself, we will be pleased to provide you with material from the conference – just let us know.

See you in Stuttgart on May 11-12, 2013!

Yours sincerely,
Florian Weißhardt Alexander Bubeck

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
