In the first part of the fifth FIP Academy seminar, Aleš Vysocký and Stefan Grushko will present the results of their research in the field of human-robot interaction and control. “In addition to ensuring the essential requirement of operational safety, intuitive interaction between robot and operator is also of great importance when working with collaborative robots. Timely operator awareness of the robot’s consecutive planned actions contributes to the smoothness of the work process and reduces the risk of occurrence of unsafe situations,” the authors outlined the direction of the talk.
Both researchers work at the Department of Robotics. While Aleš Vysocky's latest research focuses on intuitive interaction and control of robotic systems, his colleague Stefan Grushko has recently been working on human-robot collaboration, teleoperation and upper limb prostheses.
Another speaker, Jakub Kořenek, is currently working as a research associate at the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology IWU in Chemnitz, Germany. During his career so far, he has been working on projects related to contact heating, investigation of tribological properties in a strip drawing testing or combined hydroforming injection moulding technology. His presentation will focus on the merger of hydroforming and injection molding technologies.
“In recent years, new hydroforming-injection molding processes have been investigated for the processing of thermoplastic fiber. In specific applications, researchers have been able to reduce part weight, reduce process costs and increase productivity. However, the bond strength and process control are still not sufficiently explored,” Kořenek pointed out.
The seminar will take place at 2 pm via the MS Teams platform. To register for the seminar, please use the online registration form here. The language of the meeting will be English.
