Best Idea:

Scitlab – Framework for instant apps (e.g. triggered by beacon an instant app opens itself when passing the machines for showing machine data or service cases)

Scitlab provides the user with an all-in-one Solution for apps with a situation and/or location dependent use case. It eleminates the need to manually install the full app, instead it uses ressource friendly, lightweight, transient, webapps with mutiple advantages over conventional app competitors

Used platforms, gadgets:

Adamos, Festo Cobot, Cobi.Bike, Raspberry Pie, iBeacons

Best Pitch:

Robosweep – Combination of bleeding edge technologies  to clean the floor in a battle against friends by controlling a vacuuming robot from the phone.

Tired of the annoying task of vacuuming the floor? Make cleaning fun again by combining bleeding edge technologies with the ancient art of sweeping the floor!

Compete against your friends in a battle of cleaning the largest area by controlling a vacuuming robot from your phone.

Used platforms, gadgets:

Bosch IoT Cloud, Firebase, Raspberry Pi, Webcam, Kärcher RC3 Premium, VR “Headset”, MongoDB, REST-API, Websocket, React, Node.js, iOS/Android-App

Best Implementation & Kärcher Challenge:

Awesome Käse – Conversion of a Kärcher cleaning car into an autonomous driving and reacting car

We want to turn the KM50/80 into a robot, which is as most autonomous as possible.

Actuators:

– We attached a handlebar to the steering wheel, so you can steer it with a belt train

– hardware emulation of the accelerator pedal (exchange potentiometer)

Sensors:

– Laser scanner

– Reading the steering angle via potentiometer

The laser scanner at the front detects objects in front of the machine and alerts the driver optically and acoustically when the minimum distance is reached, and initiates emergency braking if required.

The laser data also records a map of the area, which has to be cleaned. Since the position of the robot is known during the whole cleaning process, it can be checked whether the driver drives too often around already cleaned areas.

The map is also the basis for an autonomous drive, even though the autonomy was not implemented until Saturday evening.

By controlling the steering and accelerator pedal, the robot can be remotely controlled via WLAN, with the laser scanner monitoring the drive.

Used platforms, gadgets:

– TCU: reading the speed, audible warning

– Hectorslam (2D mapping library from ROS)

– Laser scanner

– LED strip + Arduino Uno as a display for the driver

– stepper motors (as drive and bearing for the steering belt)

– Holders for laser scanners from Markerbeam

– Mounting drive motors from Makerbeam, cord, expander

– Candump and Cansend (to read the complete Canbus of the KM50/80 and write directly to CanOpen-SDOs)

– Steering angle: potentiometers in self-designed and 3D-printed cogs with custom fit for the steering column

– Tinkerforge Bricks:

Summary of pitched Projects ’18

There’s usually a time in the middle of the afternoon, after you’ve noshed your lunch and gotten much of the day’s work under your belt, where you start to hit an energy wall. Sound familiar?

A brief nap in the early afternoon can reduce fatigue, improve brain function, and even improve physical performance.

Sound amazing? Hold on! There’s much that you can do wrong!

How Long Should a Good Nap Be? When Should You Nap?

The solution: HappyNappy not only reminds you at the right time to take a nap but also ensures that you wake up in the right moment – by calculating the perfect duration with your daily activity history, health data, and in-nap live data from your Apple Watch!

For the perfect wakeup-experience you can connect Phillips Hue Lights, Alexa Music, or catch a crazy Spheroball in your room.
The better the nap, the better your health, the happier your life.

And to top it off, HappyNappy is connected to your Health-Insurance to get lower costs for healthier naps.

We built an application with the ADAMOS platform to track workpieces in a production environment. Furthermore our application observes the buffers before and after a production machine. The goal is to avoid interruption of the production process by ensuring that the input-buffer never runs out of workpieces and the output-buffer never gets overfilled. To achieve this we are raising warnings before a buffer gets empty or overfilled.

More and more (elderly) people are becoming lonely in big cities or they do not have social contacts when they move to a new city. According to health insurance companies this can lead to psychological diseases.

Our app will allow users to get in touch with people from their area who share the same interests. To simplify the first contact and building trust our users have to bring a gift to their first meeting.

If both participants will confirm their meeting they will get points for it. Those points will be secured on a private blockchain/smart contract.

The user can optionally choose between gift categories so the other user roughly knows what to donate.

You can also donate to non-profit organizations.

Later on an Alexa function will be implemented for choosing and buying a gift.

While others are talking about the future, we are practicing it already! Based on FESTOs latest Development, the pneumatic CoBot, we want to show others how easy and safe it is to integrate robots in our daily life and make it much easier. The CoBot is able to interact with humans. It can learn and imitate. Contrary to other robots the CoBot uses compressed air and no to move ferromagnetic components so that it can be used where other robots fail.

In our project we want to integrate the robot in hospitals, especially for MRI where metal-robots could not work. It has absolutely no leckage and no rubbing wear so it is absolutely clean. Because of the overpressure protection it is not possible to heart patients.

Based on vegetables as examples we want to show the sensitivity, the flexibility and the reliability of the CoBot.
