User Interface for an Innovative Autonomous Robot

The robot solves a complex task for the end user, but should be easy and intuitive to use even for non-technical personnel. The goal of this project is to develop a user-friendly front-end interface for task planning, monitoring and error notifications.
  • Definition of user requirements
  • Translation to desired features and technical requirements
  • Sprint-based development of an UI which enables the user to define robot tasks, monitor the robot and receive status notifications
  • Evaluation of the interface in real-world conditions, ideally with customers
  • An intuition for user-friendly UI
  • Enthusiasm to make a complex robotic product availabe through easy-to-use abstraction
  • Good knowlege in a UI framework like React, Angular, Vue or other
  • Experience or interest in design thinking
  • Eager to shape a future real-world product
  • Team spirit and good communication skills
Hierarchical Safety Concept for an Innovative Autonomous Robot

The goal of this project is to develop concept for a vision- and sensor-based safety system which is required for the robot to operate autonomously. This concept will then be implemented on the robot for pilot projects in August 2020 and evaluated in a real-world scenario.
  • Definition of requirements, in accordance with existing norms
  • Development of a hierarchical safety system based on front camera vision and different sensors
  • Implementation on micro-controller level and host system level
  • Evaluation in real-world scenarios
  • You like to solve complex tasks
  • Experience in C++ (micro-controller level)
  • Experience in C++/Python (host system)
  • Ideally experience in realtime programming, embedded systems and ROS
  • Analytical thinking and good self-organization
  • Team spirit and good communication skills
Object Detection of Trash on Grass and Gravel for an Autonomous Robot

The goal of this project is to develop an improved object detection for small trash items on grass and gravel. This is done by implementing and improving approaches from literature and adapting them to the special use-case and dataset.
  • Literature review to object detection with a focus on required computing power
  • Implementation and training of different solutions (YOLOv3, EfficientDet...)
  • Comparison and iterative adaptation
  • Integration in the robot system via ROS2
  • Evaluation on test data and real-world experiments
  • Enrolled in Robotics, Informatics, Data Engineering, ...
  • You like solving complex problems
  • Motivation to work with the state-of-the art in object detection
  • Knowlege and experience in design and training of neural networks
  • Good Python skills
  • Team spirit and good communication skills
Analyse innovativer Konzepte für einen Aufnahmemechanismus zur Entfernung von Müll auf Gras und Kies

Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es verschiedene Konzepte für einen intelligenten Aufnahmemechanismus zur Entfernung von Müll auf Gras und Kies zu vergleichen. Dazu müssen zunächst Anforderungen definiert werden, die z.B. aufgrund des heterogenen Untergrunds auftreten. Basierend darauf sollen verschieden technische Konzepte erarbeitet und anhand einer objektiven Metrik bewertet werden.
  • Literaturrecherche und Einarbeitung in die Thematik
  • Definition von Anforderungen
  • Konzeptentwicklung und Konstruktion mittels CAD-Software (CATIA, Inventor, o.ä.)
  • Definition einer Metrik zur objektiven Bewertung der Eignung für verschiedene Use Cases
  • Abschließende Bewertung und Ableitung einer Handlungsempfehlung
  • Eingeschrieben im Studiengang Maschinenwesen, Ingenieurwissenschaften, o.ä.
  • Umgang mit CAD-Software (CATIA, Inventor, o.ä.)
  • Interesse an Rapid Prototyping
  • Eigeninitiative und gewissenhafte Arbeitsweise
  • Teamfähigkeit und gute Kommunikation
