Hannover Messe 2016

22 April, 2016

Bielefeld University will show live at the Hanover Trade Fair from 25. - 29. April 2016 an assistance system supporting workers in the assembly of gear motors.
You are welcome to visit us on the OWL joint stand in Hall 16, Booth A04.

Researchers from the Institute for Cognition and Robotics (CoR-Lab) and the Center of Excellence Cognitive Interaction Technology (CITEC) of Bielefeld University will present current results of applied research in the context of Interactive Intelligent Systems at the Hannover fair. 

At the OWL joint stand 35 companies, research institutes (CoR-Lab and CITEC, Fortschrittskolleg "Designing flexible working environments") and organizations present solutions and research approaches for intelligent products and production processes - and show how companies can use them. This joint exhibition appearance is part of the leading-edge cluster "it's OWL" (Intelligent Technical Systems OstWestfalenLippe).

Scientists of Bielefeld University are working on methods of machine learning, system engineering and human-computer interaction to advance developments in "industry 4.0". This year's demonstrations showcase developed by CoR-Lab is an interactive worker assistance system for manual assembly tasks. The system projects context-sensitive visual information about required assembly steps into the field of view of the worker and allows for intuitive touch-based interaction eventually resulting in increased efficiency, process safety and product quality. Furthermore, workers may easily provide interactive feedback on the assembly process itself and other aspects such as the quality of the required materials. The gathered information can be utilized for documentation or process optimization purposes and in turn directly forward to customers, product and process owners.
