RICAIP Days 2022

This event is organised in cooperation with

On the occasion of the opening of the newly renovated and equipped RICAIP Testbed for Industry 4.0 at the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics, and Cybernetics Czech Technical University in Prague (CIIRC CTU), we would like to invite Czech and European stakeholders from academia, industry, media and public administration to a set of lectures, networking opportunities and insider talks.
Join us for the end of April and do not miss meetings with our large Industry 4.0 community.

Due to given space, the capacity is limited.
Please use the form down on this page for your registration.
We will contact you soon with details via email.

We reserve the right to refuse additional participants when capacity is reached.
If you have any question, please contact the organising team through pr@ricaip.eu.

Day 3: 29 April 2022, Friday

09:00 – 12:15 | Workshop

Parallel Session I: Robotix Academy

Introduction to HRC Robotsystems with Focus on Vision Assisted and Sensitive Systems

During this specialised workshop, the team of the Robotix Academy from ZeMA, RICAIP partner, will present the latest applications of industrial robotics with the help of interactive demonstrators.

The aim of this training is to present various human-robot collaboration (HRC) systems as a proven example of how to get started with HRC through live demonstrations, lectures, and discussions.

Since 2017, there has been at least one Robotix Academy Roadshow every year visiting various regions across Europe – Finally, we welcome this unique concept in Prague, incl. real robot settings from Saarbrücken!

This workshop is designed for

  • Engineers
  • Production Planners
  • Process Developers
  • Automation Specialists
  • Master Students
  • PhD Students
  • Researchers
  • Technology Developers
  • Experts in Automation and Robotics

Short resume

My journey at ZeMA started in 2015. ZeMA offers an international and friendly research atmosphere, where I am leading the Robotix Academy project since March 2020. Currently, I am supervising the research group for robotics and human-machine interaction. I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in mechatronics from the Saarland University, Saarbrücken, Germany, in respectively 2013 and 2015. Moreover, I completed my PhD studies on sensitive robotics at 2021 at the University of Saarland. My research interests include modeling and calibration of manipulators as well as sensitive and applied robotics.

You will learn how…
  • to plan and implement a sensitive robotics application based on integrated torque sensors on a real demonstrator
  • to commission a camera system in a robotic station and setup a camera assisted task directly on a real demonstrator
  • to design an appropriate measuring concept
  • to cope with the conception of the robot controller to achieve the desired sensitive application based on the requirement of the process and monitoring of the exerted forces
  • a 2D camera can be calibrated on a robot flange
  • to get in touch to classical signal processing methods to learn objects 

Day 3: 29 April 2022, Friday

08:30 – 15:30 | Open Days

Parallel Session II: Open Days of the National Centre for Industry 4.0 at the Testbed for Industry 4.0

The Open Day of the National Centre for Industry 4.0 (NCI4.0) at Testbed for Industry 4.0 is a unique opportunity to learn about the NCI4.0’s ecosystem, its partners and the services that they provide to small and medium-sized enterprises in the field of digitization, industrial automation, and the introduction of innovative technologies.
