Flexible automation through autonomous wheeled robotic manipulators

Arash Ajoudani

Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

Abstract: The shift from mass production to mass customization in industrial societies is underway. To respond to the flexibility needs in this new trend, industrial robots must be embedded with advanced locomotion and manipulation skills. In this direction, this talk introduces new thinking and techniques to the development and deployment of mobile robotic manipulators in industrial settings. First, the features of the Mobile Collaborative Robot Assistant (MOCA), a recently developed research platform at IIT, will be introduced. Next, several control frameworks that enable MOCA to perform autonomously or in collaboration with human workers will be discussed.

Deriving Insights into the current Challenges of autonomous Robotics Safety and self-driving Vehicles from Megatrends Analysis and Technology Foresight

Prof. Dominik Boesl

Hochschule der Bayerischen Wirtschaft

Abstract: Humankind has always relied on various forms of oracles to predict the future. Unfortunately, as we are all well aware, none of them have ever worked. Megatrend analysis in the tradition of Naisbitt provides a simple yet powerful methodology to still make valid assumptions about the future. Analyzing trends with global impact and an expected timeframe of at least 25 years, it allows for technology foresight to foreshadow humanity's needs, derived market developments and describe how ecosystems will most likely evolve. This talk will focus on establishing the fundamental framework for megatrend research, show the findings from comparing 21 megatrend studies in order to identify a reliable subset of most likely megatrends and reflect upon their interaction with one and another. Particular emphasis will be laid on the impact these scenarios imply for the domain of autonomous robotics, robot safety and autonomously driving vehicles. The presentation concludes with some questions regarding the potentially arising need for Robotic & AI Governance and the impact these disruptive technologies might have on our living realm over the next five decades.
