On December 4, this year's DLR Science Prize was awarded to Alexander Dietrich for his work entitled "Hierarchical Impedance-Based Tracking Control of Kinematically Redundant Robots".
The Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics is coordinating the VeriDream project, an international consortium of six organizations across Europe, which has been awarded €2 million by the European Innovation Council.
How can we use new technologies to address the challenges facing humanity? Online guest lecture with Daniel Leidner and Olympian and roboticist Julie Angus. Tickets are available free of charge.
The research vessel ALKOR had been underway in the Eckernförde Bay since October 20 to test an autonomous measuring network with a total of seven stations over a period of eleven days.
As part of a new cooperative project, RM scientists and other DLR institutes and partners are investigating how aid supplies can be brought safely to their destinations using remote-controlled trucks.
RM researcher Daniel Leidner is a finalist in the Falling Walls science competition. In his video, he explains how robots, as universal assistants, can help to tackle the greatest social challenges.
Head of the Institute: Prof. Dr. Alin Albu-Schäffer
The Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics develops a wide array of robots to enable humans to interact more safely and efficiently with their surrounding environments. The robots are designed to act in surroundings inaccessible or dangerous to humans as well as to support humans in everyday life and work.
Our robots mimic and extend upon the manipulation and locomotion capabilities of humans on a functional level. In a more general sense, they perform any tasks of locomotion and interaction with the environment with a wide range of autonomy to suit different tasks. As a key aspect for the usability of robots, we address the interfaces to humans through multimodal human-robot interaction.
