Gastvortrag: “Robotic sensor workshop”

The project team of RoboCoop organizes the guest lecture “Robotic sensor workshop” from Dr. Richard Balogh on the 17th of May 2022 at 4 p.m..

Robots have different sensors to detect their environment. If you want to better understand the functions of these sensors or better explain the functions of different sensors to young people, come to our workshop with BBC micro:bit. The BBC mirco:bit helps us better understand and control these sensors. It is used as an entry-level computer to introduce concepts like programming, embedded computing, and physical computing to young people and has become more popular. We will introduce micro:bit during the lecture and show possibilities for programming it.

ACIN and ASC are jointly organizing the 10th Vienna International Conference on Mathematical Modelling (MATHMOD 2022). MATHMOD 2022 will take place in Vienna, Austria from February 16 to 18, 2022 and provides a forum for professionals, researchers, and experts in the field of theoretic and applied aspects of mathematical modelling.
The Call for Papers was published on April 15th, 2021, contributions can be submitted until September 15th, 2021. Detailed information on the scope of the conference and the different types of submission are available on the conference website .

Robots go online during COVID-19

The RoboCoop project team of the Automation and Control Engineering Institute wants to awake children’s interest in MINT-disciplines. Therefore, school classes are welcome to get to know our robots. We want to show children how to program and design robots, in order to solve actual problems. Due to Covid-19 kids unfortunately cannot currently come to our Institute. We still want to bring together children and robots and so we shifted our project into the virtual space. Many schools already raised their levels of digital literacy and moved to distance learning. As well as the class of the vocational school of mechanical-, manufacturing engineering and electronics. The participants had the opportunity of immersing themselves in the world of robots. They worked on issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic by designing, programming and simulating robots. Other classes are happily invited to participate in the programme.


On the 4th of March the ERF Workshop takes place in Malaga, Spain. There will be discussions about the Human-Robot collaboration and the use of AI for industrial applications. For more information click here.

HOBBIT at La soirée rouge

On the 27th of November 2018 the event „La soirée rouge“ took place in Vienna. The aim of this event was to discuss questions about chances and problems of the digitized medicine. How will medicine 5.0 look like and how can Artificial Intelligence and Ethic be reconciled? Univ.-Prof. DI Dr. Markus Vincze gave a lecture there and presented the foster-robot Hobbit.



On the 12th and 13th of November 2018 the ICHROP, an international conference, took place in Vienna, where the rights of elderly people were discussed. Ao.Univ.Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.techn. Markus Vincze and his team presented their ideas of robots supporting seniors in their daily life. Participants of the conference got the change to meet the foster-roboter Hobbit, who offers supports for seniors.
