Top-class programme at the ROS-Industrial Conference 2018

23.11.2018

The open-source Robot Operating System (ROS) has been gaining ground in industrial applications and offers robot suppliers and users numerous benefits. At the ROS-Industrial Conference from 11 to 13 December 2018 in Stuttgart's SI-Centrum, everything revolves around ROS technologies, applications and next challenges to overcome. The conference is also an excellent opportunity for networking and professional exchange with international experts.

The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA 2018 is organizing the sixth ROS-Industrial Conference to bring together developers, suppliers and users of ROS technologies.


6th ROS-Industrial Conference 2018 in Stuttgart's SI-Centrum

ROS-Industrial

At this year’s conference, special focus will be on three topics. The first one are recent developments for software quality assessment, embedded systems, and complex architectures. Under the motto "Robotics meets IT", speakers from Bosch, Canonical, Google and Fraunhofer IPA will talk about how robotics and IT are converging, be it in methods or business models, for deployment, updated workflows, and cloud technologies.

Well-known companies present their ROS-support

The second focus lies on ROS support from robot or technology component vendors, e.g. ABB, Denso, Ensenso, Pilz, Roboception, Universal Robots, and others. Third, several application examples in aerospace, automotive, logistics are on the agenda.

In addition, participants have the chance to learn about ROS activities in Europe and how to get involved. This includes financial support within an EU-funded project for ROS developments.

Furthermore, the event will include a welcome talk on how “Robotics impacts Industry and Society: What are the Numbers and Trends” (Fraunhofer IPA), as well as three keynotes: “Open-Source Robotics for Fun & Profit” (Picknik Consulting and MoveIt!), “Robotics and Automation in the Age of the API Economy” (UC San Diego and ROBO Global), “Flexible Automotive Assembly with Industrial Co-workers” (Opel, FZI).

Open-source software as competitive factor

The conference is an ideal opportunity to get the latest insights into ROS and its applications. These have grown steadily in recent years. While ROS in its beginnings since 2007 was mainly used in science and for the development of service robot technologies, it has also found its way into the automation industry in recent years.

And with good reason, because the concept of jointly developed and usable software is an ideal opportunity to arrive at completely new forms of development and business models.

With ROS, companies can immediately use basic technologies for robots without needing many of their own resources. Commercial use of ROS is also possible. Open-source software has the potential to become a decisive competitive factor; discover how at this year’s ROS-Industrial conference.

Im Focus: Electrons in the fast lane

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.

Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....

Im Focus: The lightest electromagnetic shielding material in the world

Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.

Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

Im Focus: Gentle wall contact – the right scenario for a fusion power plant

Quasi-continuous power exhaust developed as a wall-friendly method on ASDEX Upgrade

A promising operating mode for the plasma of a future power plant has been developed at the ASDEX Upgrade fusion device at Max Planck Institute for Plasma...

Im Focus: ILA Goes Digital – Automation & Production Technology for Adaptable Aircraft Production

Live event – July 1, 2020 - 11:00 to 11:45 (CET)
"Automation in Aerospace Industry @ Fraunhofer IFAM"

The Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM l Stade is presenting its forward-looking R&D portfolio for the first time at...

Im Focus: AI monitoring of laser welding processes - X-ray vision and eavesdropping ensure quality

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.

Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
