The new Data Bites are served on Thursday, 3rd March 2022, 12:00 – 13:15 CET together with Dr. Walter Wohlkinger on the topic of Collaborative Robots – Technologies and Trends.

Collaborative Robots (Cobots) have developed into flexible manufacturing tools to close the productivity gap between manual production and full automation. In this talk, Dr. Wohlkinger gives an introduction to the field of collaborative robotics, including technologies, safety and regulatory aspects, market overview, trends and upcoming business models.

Dr. Walter Wohlkinger got his Phd in Robotics at the Vienna University of Technology in 2012. He was working in several research projects where assistive robots for the elderly were developed. In 2013, he founded Blue Danube Robotics, a high-tech company developing safety skins for robots. Blue Danube Robotics won more than eight robotics and innovation awards, holds five patents and partners with industry leaders such as KUKA, Stäubli and Epson. Now, Dr. Wohlkinger is starting his second company Relieve Robotics, to bring robots faster and in bigger numbers into Austrian SMEs via the Robots-as-a-Service model.
