Research and Innovation are Key

Customers

Roboception’s products are vital components of the innovative solutions our customers and partners develop – among them are:

Projects

Roboception is actively engaged in research and innovation, cooperates with Universities and
Research Institutions and – as a part of SPARC – is involved in strengthening the robotic competences across Europe. In addition to actively coordinating the Topic Group “Perception” within SPARC, Roboception is involved in publicly funded projects on national (BFS, BMWi, BMBF) and European level.

[01/2021-12/2025] ODIN: With funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement No. 101017141, the project aims to strengthen the EU production companies’ trust in utilizing advanced robotics by demonstrating that novel robot-based production systems are not only technically feasible but also efficient and sustainable for immediate introduction at the shopfloor.

[11/2020-04/2025] KI5GRob: KI5GRob addresses in a new way how machine learning can be efficiently used in robotics by tightly linking cloud technologies and robotics in a tight control loop, and how the concept pursued can fundamentally simplify the programming and maintenance of robotic systems.

[03/2021-02/2025] 5gsmartfact: With funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Grant Agreement ID 956670, this project (Future Wireless Connected and Automated Industry Enabled by 5G) is to study, develop, optimize and assess the deployment of 5G networks factory environments and automation applications.

[01/2020-12/2023] RoMaFo: Supported by the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy (StMWi), the consortium is working towards a robotic assistant system and machine vision for the assembly of unstable components in customer-individual products.

[10/2020-09/2023] RobIn4LeMi: Robot-supported interaction systems for performance-impaired employees, funded by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.

[09/2020-08/2023] KoARob: Robot-based assistance systems or cobots without separating protective equipment are becoming increasingly important in production. For personnel safety during operation, a few special safety-oriented sensors will be used to divide the area around the robot system into different, rough zones. As soon as a person enters a zone, the robot is slowed down or stopped completely. The goal of the project is to develop concepts and coordinated evaluation electronics that make it possible to combine a wide range of sensors, measurement processes and AI methods into a safety-oriented sensor system. The aim is to enable robots to be operated more cost-effectively and efficiently, yet safely in the human workspace.

[04/2020-03/2022] KI4MRK: Roboception is the coordinator of this project, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Its objective is the development of human motion prediction using a combination of three deep neural networks (NN).

Projects Completed Successfully

RoPHA: Robust perception capabilities for robots to support elderly users in a home environment, funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

THOMAS: Mobile dual arm robotic workers with embedded cognition for hybrid and dynamically reconfigurable manufacturing systems, funded under the project number 723616 within the Horizon 2020 FoF2 – 2016 programme.

FOR3D:  Pace-keeping 3D-reconstruction and analysis (Schritthaltende 3D-Rekonstruktion und -Analyse), funded by the Bavarian Science Foundation (BFS).

FORobotics: Mobile, ad-hoc cooperating robot teams (Mobile, ad-hoc kooperierende Roboterteams), funded by the Bavarian Science Foundation (BFS).

Webinare & Workshops

NEW! WEBINARS

In our 1-hour webinar, you will learn everything about Roboception’s innovative portfolio, starting with the rc_visard stereo sensor, and all the way to the latest software module, which localizes objects independent of their position solely based on their CAD data, and delivers grasp points for these objects.

Use this opportunity to get a live view of our hardware and software, and have your questions answered right away.

These webinars are held via Zoom. They are of course free of charge, however, a registration is required.
