Optimization of logistics and production processes – using the example of dynamic route optimization in the warehouse

The dynamic optimization of logistics and production processes in real time is at the top of the wish list of many small and large companies in order to gain a significant reduction of costs while improving machine utilization, workload distribution and product delivery times. Using the example of a fictitious warehouse, it can be shown which optimization measures interlock with each other and how complex processes become manageable even for small companies.

RoKoRa – secure human-robot collaboration using high-resolution radars

In the RoKoRa project, the aim is to exclude hazards of humans by robots. For this purpose, compact radar systems are used. They offer many advantages: radars operate independently of any lighting and are largely insensitive to environmental conditions. In addition, radar sensors can measure not only the distance to the sensor, but also the motion vector of the detected targets. The sensor system to be developed significantly improves personnel safety in human-robot collaboration, resulting in new degrees of freedom for a safe cooperation with larger robots and at higher distance-dependent execution speeds. In the project, SCAI develops a software component for environmental perception for situational analysis and decision-making using methods of machine learning.

Project duration: 1.7.2017 - 30.6.2020
