The fifth edition of the Robotix Lecture within the Robotix-Academy took place from 04 to 08 February 2019 at the University of Luxembourg, Kirchberg campus. This five-day block seminar was attended by 40 master students, 4 professors and a dozen assistants from each of the partner universities of the Greater Region: Université de Lorraine (France), Université de Liège (Belgium), ZeMA Saarbrücken (Germany) and the University of Luxembourg. As every year, the Robotix-Academy offered students the opportunity to participate in an intensive week of training courses on industrial robotics.
The program was very busy and diverse. The program included various presentations, lectures and exercises (simulation software and offline programming) on the topic of industrial robotics. In addition, the students gained hands-on programming experience on several robots and devices from the partner institutions, which allowed them to discover a wide range of software and hardware from a variety of perspectives. A visit to robot manufacturer Fanuc at Contern/Luxembourg, as well as dinner and team building at Jumpbox, ideally rounded out this five-day seminar.
The Robotix-Academy was launched as a cross-border research cluster for industrial robotics in the context of the Interreg program V A Greater Region. The aim is to create synergies in teaching and research with the universities of the Greater Region. This year, the cross-border block lecture was again organized within the framework of the Interreg project Robotix-Academy and with the support of UniGR.
The next edition will take place in February 2020 at ZeMA in Saarbrücken.
