On Monday, June 28, 2021, the RICAIP Brain & Breakfast Discussion with ZeMA & Yaskawa kicked off shortly before 09:00. The nearly 25 participants were able to discuss in a video conference with Khansa Rekik, researcher in robotics at ZeMA, and Christopher Schneider from Yaskawa about current experiences and challenges in “Planning Human-Robot Collaboration in Production Cells”.
The Research and Innovation Centre on Advanced Industrial Production RICAIP (ricaip.eu) organized its latest RICAIP Brain & Breakfast Discussion in collaboration with ZeMA and its industrial partner, Yaskawa, which has a long history as one of the world’s leading manufacturers in motion control, industrial automation and robotics.
The discussion was moderated by Tilman Becker, director of RICAIP, and continued by Khansa Rekik, a researcher in the Robotics and Human-Machine Interaction group at ZeMA and part of the Robotix Academy project. From Yaskawa, Christopher Schneider, Product Manager & Industrial PhD Program Collaborative Robotics, participated in the discussion.
RICAIP Brain & Breakfast Discussions are intended to be informal business and/or scientific roundtable discussions with one or two keynote speakers. They serve as an exchange between industry representatives and young researchers on a specific topic: unmediated two-way feedback, brainstorming or even direct consultancy on a given topic are possible.
