Night of technology

Hello everyone,

Lisa here ;). Yesterday I was at the Night of Technology in Koblenz. I met a lot of new people who where interested in me and my demonstration. At the beginning we started with some problems: I wasn’t able to drive because of a wrong firmware in the repository. Luckily, after an update the problem could be solved. In the evening there was also a Scottish band playing right next to me. Not as good as my robot-interpretation of “I need a dollar”, but nevertheless a good performance.

Do you already know the Kinder Technik Ferien Camps? In short, it’s a holiday event for children, where they can work with technology.

Their team was also at the Night of Technology and of course, I had to visit them. Their attraction was a robotic arm, that could grab things out of a box and transport them into another box (as you see at the photos below). The kids loved it!

I hope everyone who visited me got a good impression of me and for those who were not able to come I can say that there will be upcoming chances in the future.

Greetings and with love

Lisa

The real work started

Hello friends,

the first sprint started on monday. A lot of tasks were planned and assigned to students. Next week some of them have to be done and I hope I will get better functionalities ;-).

This week, we also had a social event with a lot of tasty food.

Yum yum! :-).

Do you remember the accident last week? Luckily this problem is solved now and the students could continue working on me. At the moment, Raphael is testing a new speech recognition, I hope he will have success with it. If there’s news in this regard we will report it.

I wish everyone a good start in the next week. You will hear from me soon. Bye bye, Lisa :-)

A bad accident

Last week something bad happened! By a stupid accident my cables were connected incorrectly and a few hardware parts burned trough.:-( Luckily we had had some spare parts and the students could go on working with me.

Robbie 24 - The new project

Hello everyone,

finally, the new project has begun. Currently we are in the middle of our two week “Boot camp”. The students learn how to deal with my hardware, how to program with ROS and create complex software modules. It’s nice to see how quickly the new students have got used to me. Especially Raphael was pleased to see me again ;-)

Lucky Raphael.

During the first test runs I was pretty nervous and it has not all worked out perfectly. But for the first few days, it went quiet good. For the new project I got a new industrial camera, sponsored by IDS. I’m very thankful for this new device and am looking forward to using it. In the next days Stephan will integrate the camera into my framework.

Bye for now, Lisa
