KUKA Innovation Award 2018

The next round of the KUKA Innovation Award has begun: up to July 2, young researchers from all over the world can submit their concepts addressing this year’s topic: the “Real-world Interaction Challenge”. The winner will receive a monetary prize of 20,000 euro.

This year’s competition focuses on robots that can interact outside as well as inside the industrial environment, with emphasis on direct support for humans. The concept and presentation of the applications should be as realistic as possible.

To enable fair comparison of the concepts, KUKA provides each of the final teams with a flexFellow – a mobile robotic unit on which an LBR iiwa (a sensitive lightweight robot for safe human-robot collaboration) is mounted. Beyond this, a 3D vision system from the start-up company Roboception will be available.
