Middle: Collaboration also means communication: A LED belt signals the respective operating status at the DGUV-certified SCHUNK Co-act EGP-C gripper system. Right: Thanks to artificial intelligence, this SCHUNK SVH 5-finger hand can identify different objects at an arbitrary position and autonomously develop and apply relevant gripping strategies.

Service robotics – at your service

Servicerobotik - Zu Diensten

Particularly since the success of vacuum and lawn mower robots, wearables and voice-controlled virtual assistants, the world of service robotics has experienced a real boost. Its fan base is growing rapidly and so too are the possible fields of applications. During the 11th Expert Days on Service Robotics, from 27 to 28 February, under the motto ‘Towards Open Robotics’, the specialist for gripping systems and clamping technology SCHUNK will show which technologies are moving into the spotlight and which robots will become part of private and corporate daily life.

Spätestens seit dem Siegeszug von Saug- und RasenmäherRobotern, Wearables und Sprachassistenten erlebt die ServiceRobotik einen regelrechten Schub. Die Fangemeinde wächst rasant und mit ihr die möglichen Einsatzfelder. Unter dem Motto ‚Towards Open Robotics‘ zeigt der Greifsystem- und Spanntechnikspezialist SCHUNK vom 27. bis 28. Februar auf den elften Expert Days on Service Robotics, welche Technologien in den Fokus rücken und wie Roboter künftig den privaten und beruflichen Alltag begleiten werden.

The range of topics is very diverse at the interdisciplinary symposium, which is held at the European service robotichotspot, Odense in Denmark, for the first time. From humanrobot collaborations, humanoid components and cloud robotics to micro and bio robots – this event appeals to scientists and technologists as well as industrial companies and start-ups, but also to humanities scholars, social scientists, financial companies and investors.

Das Themenspektrum des interdisziplinären Symposiums, das erstmals am europäischen Servicerobotik-Hotspot Odense in Dänemark stattfindet, ist vielfältig. Es reicht von der Mensch-Roboter-Kollaboration über humanoide Komponenten und die Cloud-Robotik bis hin zu Mikro- und Biorobotern. Angesprochen sind Forscher und Technologen ebenso wie Industrieunternehmen und Startups, aber auch Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaftler sowie Finanzunternehmen und Investoren.

Cobots, also Roboter die unmittelbar mit dem Menschen kollaborieren, Cobots, which are robots that collaborate directly with humans, versprechen großes Potenzial. So wächst die industrielle Servicerobotik promise great potential. Hence, the field of industrial service derzeit um 20 bis 25 Prozent pro Jahr.
