Philip Nicolai presented the OP:Sense system for robot-assisted surgery with camera supervision and won the second price together with Tim Beyl in the category “Best Video Presentation” for a example video for different in Intuitive modes of robot control implemented by OP:Sense.
The lecture of Alexander Kettler showed the behavior of a robot swarm, while sorting boxes with different colours by using simulations and model-based methods and also experiments with real Wanda-Robots. Furthermore several topics of the EU-projects Replicator and Symbrion were presented.
Jens Liedke reported on the docking mechanism of the Symbricator-Robot.
Rene Matthias reported on the essential aspects of the software-architecture that had been used and the underlying system software.
Lutz Winkler presented the metrics and diversity metrics of modular robots.
