Shop Floor Logistics and Manipulation

Challenge 2Three application scenarios will be considered. The first one is based on a stationary LWR and a simulation environment. The contestants will integrate their solutions in a well‐designed and tested simulation environment that encapsulates all low‐level control and reflex planning loops of the LWR. The simulation environment will be accessible over the Internet. Algorithms which are expensive in terms of required computing power will be relayed to a cloud. In the second application scenario the same Internet‐based framework is used to control a real LWR mounted on a mobile base, the KUKA omniRob, operating in simplified manufacturing environment. The third scenario will replicate a realistic manufacturing set‐up with work pieces of a real end‐user. Challengers will be asked to solve a set of tasks using the LWR‐omniRob platform.
