The development of increasingly sophisticated Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and highly complex Autonomous Vehicles poses great challenges to today’s engineers…
“Virtual Commissioning” aims at the setup and initial programming of complex automation systems based on digital model and methods, particularly 3D simulation and rendering.
The so-called Sense-Think-Act paradigm is considered as the operative definition of a (mobile) robot. A special aspect of the mobile robot is the robot’s interaction with its changeable and variable, often unknown and unstructured surroundings.
When it comes to simulation algorithms, the simulation of the dynamic behavior of the mechanical system is of major importance.
In the case of virtual reality applications the (audio)-visual feedback of the simulation takes often center stage. Nevertheless for many applications realistic movement feedback is indispensable.
Almost all eRobotics techniques are based on the implementation of 3D simulation technology. The basis for this is a model of the system under consideration, as well as an operational environment.
“Simulation-based control” techniques in the context of 3D simulation technology enable the design and testing of innovative, complex control algorithms in the application of robots and automation.
Models are the basis of every simulation and therefore the basis of almost every eRobotic application. They have to reproduce the viewed scenario in sufficient detail and accurately. However the creation of these models often constitutes a big challenge.
The objective of innovations in eRobotics is to provide a comprehensive software environment for the processing of issues and questions arising out of robotics. To this end eRobotics brings “robotics expertise into the research fields of virtual reality (VR) and 3D simulation”.
Intelligent man and machine interfaces represent the key technologies for applications in service robotics, in industrial automation technology…
