Team Profile:

The Institute for Management Cybernetics is an associate institute of the RWTH Aachen University. Among other topics its research object are intelligent planning and control algorithms for technical systems. We focus on mobile robotics within intra-logistic applications as well as process planning and industrial robotics. Here we address aspects of human robot interaction and collaboration. The main goal is to endow the respective technical systems with autonomy and situational awareness in order to achieve more robust behavior and an increased flexibility while at the same time simplifying the interaction with those systems. We therefore consider (multi-) agent technologies, closed loop control systems and visual servoing, and natural interface technologies. Within the joint team Carologistics we take part in the RoboCup Logistics League, where we currently are German champion.

We enter the competition as a mixed team of research assistants of different backgrounds – Computer Science, Mechanical Engineering, and Mechatronics – as well as apprentices for mathematical-technical software development. Our current success within the RoboCup Logistics League gives note about our capabilities to succeed within a robotic competition. We are proficient in the use of ROS and especially ROS Industrial which we employ in our research as well as in our demonstrator (see goo.gl/iWkzw1). The single team members have experience in the skills relevant to the competition as shown in the following list of publications:
