Intelligent technologies for commercial vehicles in the areas of digitalization, autonomy and innovation efficiency will be presented at the Mercedes-Benz plant in Wörth on Friday, November 13, 2015. It is very important to set technology and innovation trends to be competitive as a medium sized supplier. As an expert in mobile automation, the Robot Makers GmbH sees itself well positioned at the market and will participate at this event as an exhibitor.
From 10th to 14th November 2015 we will be part of the biggest trade fair for agricultural technology in the world, the Agritechnica 2015 in Hanover. On the one hand, we will be part of the booth of the chair Agricultural System Technology of Technical University Dresden, where we will present our central control unit Generic Control Box. The Generic Control Box is hereby used for the base control of the research vehicle elWObot and coordinates the four individually driven and steerable wheels. On the other hand, we will participate as visitors, starting on the preview days (08th and 09th November), to inform about the newest trends and the needs and desires of our customers.
The Robot Makers GmbH is nominated for the first prize of the “Zukunftspreis Pfalz 2015”. This tribute is honored every two years by the regional association Palatinate. This honor should “boost excellent innovative ideas, products, projects and performances which reinforce the sustainability and the sustainable development of the region.” Projects in the sector of environment sciences, natural sciences, liberal arts/social sciences, technology or economy can receive this award.
For many technological processes and information processing it is important to get certain results in a specific period of time. In this case the term real-time is used. What are real-time capable systems? How “quick” do they have to be and where are they needed? These are the questions we want to answer with this article.
Here you can find first pictures of the new MCS Hydraulic Control, that will be available on the market in the near future. The MCS Hydraulic Control is suitable for hydraulic drives like cylinders or engines. It enables the possibility of a synchronous control of multi-axle hydraulic arms depending on joint angles. Therefore, it is perfectly suitable for the realisation of assistance functions or the automation and robotization of mobile working machines. If you have any questions relating to the performance of the MCS Hydraulic Control, do not hesitate to contact us. Our employees will be more than happy to assist.
The Robot Makers GmbH is new partner of the Commercial Vehicle Cluster Southwest (CVC). This organization consists of prestigious representatives from science, politics and economy. The association has set itself the target to improve the reliability of commercial vehicles and to promote the development of new technologies. We want to contribute to that with our knowledge in the field of automation of mobile systems, the development of driving assistance systems and the control of hydraulic systems. Furthermore, we want to present our products and services on different events of the cluster. So, we will show our business activities at the Commercial Vehicle Technology Symposium (CVT-Symposium) at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern in March 2016 and we will also be part of the CVC-annual-conference in November 2015 in Wörth.
The Synchronous-Serial-Interface (SSI) is a digital interface which is mostly used in length and angle measuring systems. It is especially suitable for applications where reliability and signal robustness is very important. The Max Stegmann GmbH, which is now a part of the company group SICK, was the developer of the SSI. Meanwhile, SSI is also used by other manufacturers. Unlike a parallel interface, where the bits are transmitted in various lines, transmission here is serial – which means successively.
After one year the practical training of our intern Mareike is going to end this week. Immediately after this she will start the studies in information management at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern at the campus of Zweibrücken. In order to give you an insight into the working life of an intern at the Robot Makers GmbH, we asked Mareike to summarize her working life for us. Finally, we thank Mareike for her commitment and dedication for the Robot Makers GmbH and we wish her much success and fun for the upcoming studies and her later professional life.
In the current issue (03/2015) of the UNI SPECTRUM, our company is presented in a short portrait. The UNI SPECTRUM is a magazine of the Technical University of Kaiserslautern which is published every three months with a print run of 7000 to 9000 copies. The magazine can be downloaded here. The article about our company can be found on page 45.
In order to further improve our know-how in the sector of orchards, we visited the “Appeldag 2015” on June 25, 2015 in Cothen (Netherlands). At this event, which takes place every second year, everything is about orchards, from cultivation to harvest to selling. At our visit we made many new contacts and gained interesting insights into the world of orchards.
