Field Trip to Aachen Cathedral
We made use of the last days of calm before the new semester starts and toured the roof of Aachen Cathedral and got to know our new team members: Viktoria Falk, Seok Chung and Victor Bausinger. It was humbling to learn about the engineering prowess that existed 1200 years ago and how the various epochs of construction now interact. A big thank you to http://dombauhuette-aachen.de/ for the fascinating tour.
the end: architecture @ Architekturzentrum Wien
If you are in Vienna from now until March 2017 make sure to visit the Architekturzentrum Wien (AzW). It is hosting an exhibition titled http://www.azw.at/event.php?event_id=1709. The exhibition travels through the past sixty years of architecture highlighting how the past is influencing the current and how each ending can also be a beginning.
Our projects DIANA – Dynamic Interactive robotic Assistant for Novel Applications and the recent master thesis kinetic weaving are being show-cased as part of the exhibition.
Kinetic Weaving Workshop @ ROBODONIEN 2016
Viktoria Falk and Lukas Mahlendorf are bringing their travelling http://www.ip.rwth-aachen.de/kineticweaving.html pavilion to Robodonien, the http://www.robodonien.de/. The two created the pavilion during their master thesis at RWTH Aachen University under the supervision of Prof. Sigrid Brell-Cokcan and Prof. Linda Hildebrand http://www.rb.rwth-aachen.de/.
We have developed an intelligent robotic assistant for the construction of the pavilion. With the support of KUKA we are holding a workshop at Robodonien where visitors can experience the haptic programming that allows for intuitive control of the robotic assistant. The robot will help with the creation of small, foldable elements that can then be freely assembled during the festival.
So come on by! The festival is in Odonien, Cologne from the 16th to 18th of September
Showcase of Human Robot Interaction at ARS ELECTRONICA
We are happy to announce that we will be showcasing our research in human robot collaboration at this year’s http://www.aec.at/news/ starting September 8th. We look forward to seeing you there!
