STAMINA Consortium Presents Innovative Robotic Solution for Mobile Manipulators at AUTOMATICA Trade Fair
An autonomous mobile manipulator for kitting operations in the automotive sector will be presented by the STAMINA consortium at the AUTOMATICA trade fair from 21 to 24 June in Munich. Coordinated by Aalborg University, this EU project showcases a robotic system demonstrating advanced sensing, on-the-fly robot programming, autonomous part handling, and navigation and integration in the manufacturing execution system of the factory.
Finally: AAUSAT4 is now in orbit and in good shape
Monday evening, after three postponements, the European Space Agency ESA finally launched the Soyuz rocket from French Guiana that carried Aalborg University's newest satellite in space. Early Tuesday morning the engineering students were in two-way contact with AAUSAT4. Its beacons were also received by radio amateurs in the United States, Austria and Denmark.
The Faculty of Engineering and Science at AAU to be split in two
To be able to contribute more efficiently to solving future challenges of society, Aalborg University will split its Faculty of Engineering and Science into two faculties. Both of the new faculties will have a sharper, more focused profile and more leadership effectiveness. At the same time, the initiative will strengthen the internal organisation of the university.
Research Catapult Tests the Dangers of Drones
At Aalborg University’s Drone Research Lab, a new experimental setup with a motorized catapult and high-speed camera now documents in detail what happens when one of the popular small hobby drones hit objects or people. In the first film from the lab, drones are sent on a collision course with a pork roast.
Radar Technology to Improve Mobile Connection
If future mobile phones are to take advantage of the enormous speeds on the 5G network, antennas need to be much more advanced than they are today. With a major investment from Innovation Fund Denmark, a new collaboration between AAU and tech firms Intel and Wispry will develop the world's best mobile antennas inspired by radar technology.
