On May 04 and 05, 2022, the team around Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rainer Müller, Head of the Assembly Systems Research Department at ZeMA, organized the 14th Assembly Conference in the Congresshalle in Saarbrücken.
The conference was a meeting place for decision-makers, planners and developers from production and engineering. The focus was on applications, technologies and approaches for the digital transformation of industry, but also on strategic topics such as the use of hydrogen for emission-free mobility. Presentations also addressed sustainability in the production environment, employee qualification and the topic of industrial security.
“We invited prominent representatives from leading industrial companies to our conference to present and discuss the latest developments and trends in production. The use of new technologies and the continuous improvement of production and company processes secure existing jobs and are a guarantee that Germany can maintain its leading economic role in Europe and the world,” said Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rainer Müller, Head of the Assembly Systems Research Department at ZeMA.
This year again, the participants were offered an exhibition that invited them to exchange ideas and experience new products and developments. The Robotix-Academy was represented with a demonstrator, which presented an intelligent robot system for solving solving games.
The autonomous learning of an intelligent robot system has enormous potential to solve assembly tasks. Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, in this case Deep Reinforcement Learning, the robots of the future will be able to adapt to different environments, think autonomously and solve problems on their own, under the given conditions.
