The FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik has released »VDB Mapping«, a high-performance probabilistic 3D mapping framework that generates volumetric environment maps in real-time from lidar data.
KIT releases the newly developed app »iviz« for visualization and teleoperation of robots using virtual and augmented reality.
From 22.10.2019 to 23.10.2019 the first participatory event of the ROBDEKON Competence Center will take place in Karlsruhe. The event has the character of a conference and will feature talks by experts in the field of decontamination and robotics. The talks will be given both by users from the field and by members of the ROBDEKON consortium.
Around a year after work began on setting up the ROBDEKON Competence Center (»Robotic systems for decontamination in hazardous environments«), a ceremonial opening event will be held on June 25, 2019, at the Fraunhofer Institute of Optronics, System Technologies and Image Exploitation IOSB in Karlsruhe.
