KUKA Innovation Award 2018: Real-World Interaction Challenge
We are very happy to announce that a team from the Institute for Computational Design and Construction was chosen as one of the five finalists of this year’s KUKA Innovation Award.
KUKA launched the research competition in 2014 to promote innovation in the field of robot-based automation and to support technology transfer from science to industry. It is aimed at developers, graduates and research teams from universities or companies.
The participants develop ideas for tackling challenges specified by KUKA. A jury of experts selects the finalists from all of the entries submitted. The finalist teams implement their projects using KUKA hardware and present the results to wide-ranging specialist audiences at major trade fairs. In doing so, KUKA provides the teams with the opportunity to showcase their work in a professional trade fair environment. At the end of the trade fair week, the jury of experts crowns the winner. The award was first presented at Automatica 2014.
