Clone of RoboticLab

Einblicke in das RoboticLab

Students of Telematics at the TUAS Wildau are engaged in projects and also in the context of theses with the ways of using NAO robots in applied research.

Topics for working with NAOs in the Telematics laboratories are for example: Human-Robot-Interaction in the therapeutic area, Robot-Robot-Interaction, Localization and Navigation or Perception and Cognition as well as Locomotion.

The Nibo2 robots, produced by nicai systems, are mainly used for entry into the world of robotics.

The RoboticLab is open for students, that take part in the NaWiTex programm. Here they will learn the applications of robots in modern robotics and applied computer science and see what it takes to bring life to robots.

3rd prize in the competition “Mensch und Technik 2016"

Mathias Lindt and Max Dellüge, students of the master program Telematics of the TUAS Wildau, received the 3rd prize in the competition “Mensch und Technik 2016" of the VDI Berlin-Brandenburg for their joint project "Learn and use sign language with hEarMotion and NAO Robots!".

In their project work that is part of the module "programming embedded systems with C ++”, the two telematics students had programmed "their" humanoid robot called "Annabell" to teach people the sign language and to translate selected spoken words and sentences into sign language using gestures.

Robots in residence

Since summer 2020, two NAO robots, GAIA and NaoMI, have been traveling through Europe on different routes - each month they visit a different city. This exciting project of the Goethe-Institut in Munich is part of the project “Generation A = Algorithmus - Nachdenken über Künstliche Intelligenz”, which aims to bring the discussion about Artificial Intelligence to broader social classes. The RoboticLab is responsible for preparing the NAO robots and providing technical support on their travels.

Roboter hört mit!

The NAO robot Ada of the public library in Frankfurt am Main had its first use as a reading robot (press release). A tour through the city's public libraries is planned. RoboticLab is happy about the lively and exciting cooperation with the team of the Frankfurt public library.

ROS-E Table Robot

ROS-E is a current research project of the RoboticLab team, a completely in-house development. A robot used by students in project work and internships to adapt and expand hardware and software as required. ROS-E is still a rough prototype yet made of a wooden frame, in the next few months it will get a new 3D-printed housing. The vision is to use ROS-E as a social robot buddy in the future.

Pepper als Assistent in der Hochschulbibliothek der TH Wildau

Pepper as library assistent

Im Rahmen einer hochschulinternen Zielvereinbarung unter dem Titel „Pepper4Library“ wurde der Pepper-Roboter Wilma für den Bibliothekseinsatz bis 2018 vorbereitet und ist aktuell für Informationsdienste und Bibliotheksführungen im Einsatz.

Having an espresso with Wilma

Dirk Wissen has conducted an interview with Wilma (in German) in the library of the TUAS Wildau for the current issue of the journal BuB: Forum Bibliothek und information. The issue focuses on automation and robotics in libraries. Wilma gives detailed information on essential questions about tasks, beings and the future of humanoid robots.

HIT 2018 an der TH Wildau

Auf dem Hochschulinformationstag stellen sich die Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge der TH Wildau vor und öffnen ihre Labore.

Im Studiengang Telematik ist die Programmierung humanoider Roboter eine Möglichkeit der Spezialisierung. Enrico hat den Roboter Tommy programmiert, der die Sprachentwicklung von Kindern mit Down-Syndrom unterstützt. Hier geht es zu ausgewählten Projekten aus dem RoboticLab.

Am 26. Mai 2018 erhalten Besucher wieder spannende Einblicke in die praktischen und theoretischen Inhalte eines Studiums.

RoboticLab at the Leipzig Book Fair

At this year's Leipzig Book Fair on March 15.-18. visitors were able to get an idea of ​​the humanoid robot NAO. At the booth of the Federal Government, the RoboticLab informed about deployment scenarios of humanoid robots and gave an insight into the interaction with robots.

Before Pepper starts working as an assistant in the library, NAO has attracted a lot of attention. The interest in robotics was great.


Robotik im Studiengang Telematik

Auch in diesem Jahr wurden in der wahlobligatorischen Veranstaltung "Eingebettete Systeme II" wieder erfolgreich Projekte mit dem humanoiden Roboter NAO umgesetzt.

Sehen Sie hier, welche kreativen Ideen unsere Studierenden im Verlauf des Sommersemesters 2017 realisiert haben. 

Innovation Award for Libraries 2017

Innovation Award for Libraries 2017

The city library of Wildau and its cooperation partner, the RoboticLab of the TUAS Wildau, won the Innovation Award for Libraries, granted by the federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg 2017 on October 23, 2017.

With the project "Reading support with handy humanoid robots", the robot is used to create a tandem of a child reader and a non-human partner to motivate and support children in learning to read. In addition to the city library Wildau four other projects were nominated by the jury.

The innovation prize was awarded for the first time by the Berlin-Brandenburg Stiftung Bibliotheks-Forschung e.V. in cooperation with the educational institutions and library associations of the region.

2nd prize in the VDI competition "Mensch und Technik"

Janine Breßler won 2nd place in this year's competition "Mensch und Technik" of the VDI-Berlin / Brandenburg with her Master's thesis on the topic "Concept and development of teaching modules in the context of artificial intelligence with focus on the fields of service robotics and smart home" !

With her work she finds international recognition. For example, at this year's WomEncourage Conference of the ACM in Barcelona, ​​she was invited to talk about it. In March 2018, she will also give a talk at a STEM conference in Orlando.
