Competitions

In cooperation with the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, the mobile robotics laboratory successfully participates in various competitions (RoboCup Rescue, RoboCup@work, and Audi Autonomous Driving Cup). Given the multifaceted problems that arise in the fields of mechanics, actuator technology, sensor technology, and data processing, interdisciplinary collaborations provide optimum solutions through advantageous synergies to achieve mobility and autonomy in our robot systems.

The research and development work carried out in the mobile robotics laboratory focuses on algorithms for implementing autonomous functionality. Educational research projects, research projects. and tasks conducted as part of contract research are carried out in this area.
