Siemens’ Ulrich Münz presents “Industrial Autonomous Systems: Vision and State of the Art” as part of the IRIM Robotics Seminar Series. The event will be held in the Technology Square Research Building (TSRB) Auditorium from 11 a.m.–noon and is open to the public.

Abstract

This talk outlines key features of future autonomous systems in diverse fields of applications ranging from industrial manufacturing to transportation and energy systems. Moreover, several examples are presented that show the state of the art of autonomous systems at Siemens. Some of these examples are on an early research level; others are part of existing products. Based on these examples, key areas for future research are discussed.
