    Karlsruhe, 19.06.2018 – At the European Robotics Challenges (EuRoC), team FLA²IR (Flexible Automotive Assembly with Industrial Co-Workers) prevailed against more than 100 highly qualified, international teams. For more than four years, the FZI Research Center for Information Technology, Opel Automobile GmbH and MRK-Systeme worked as project partners of team FLA²IR on the development of innovative solutions for the European manufacturing industry. On June 19, team FLA²IR was declared the winner of the European robotics challenge at Automatica in Munich. On June 20, the official award ceremony will take place on the stage of the Start-up Arena (hall B4) from 4:00 p.m. until 5:30 p.m., where the most successful concept of the challenge will be awarded.

    Team FLA²IR was always at the leading positions during the course of the challenge. Re-searcher Georg Heppner, who is responsible for the project at the FZI, explains: “The FZI has developed the robot as well as the sequence control. The fact that we have achieved the EuRoC overall prize is the result of an optimum interaction of the project partners and a concept tailored to the manufacturing industry that will significantly improve the processes in companies.”

    During the course of the project, the FZI developed an automated robotic assembly for flexible polymer door sealings on car doors. For this purpose, an external force control was developed that can be used easily and directly also for numerous other robots as a package of the open-source robotic software ROS-Industrial. The CAD-2-PATH software is used for the simple path creation for the robot. This enables a quick adjustment to other door models and does not require any expert knowledge. The CAD-2-PATH application of the FZI was already ranked second at the “handling award” last year.

    The European Robotics Challenges are an EU project of the Framework Programme FP7 for the support of innovative robotics solutions that are application-oriented and strengthen Europe as a business location. The participating teams generally consisted of a research institute, a system integrator and an end user. In the case of team FLA²IR, these were the FZI Research Center for Information Technology as research partner, MRK-Systeme GmbH as system integrator and the Opel Automobile GmbH as end user. The project was launched on April 1, 2014, the challenge ends with the announcement of the winner on June 19, 2018, at the official press conference of Automatica in Munich.
    Automatica takes place from June 19 to 22, 2018 at the exhibition centre Messe München. Team FLA²IR presents its work together with other finalists of the challenge at booth 417 in hall B4.
