Open Robotics Lab Winter 2021/22


You have an interesting idea for a robotic project?

But you have no access to a well-equipped lab, robots, and expertise?

Then the IRP has good news for you:

We are introducing a new project activity where you and your team define your
project and we provide the robots, the lab, and everything else you might need.
You will have access to all our robots like

  • Kuka,
  • 4x Panda,
  • Humanoid COMAN,
  • The industrial Stäublis,
  • Baxter,
  • Mobile platforms,
  • etc...

as well as all other assets including

  • Tracking system,
  • Sensors,
  • 3D printer,
  • Virtual reality headset,
  • etc...

All you need to do is to join, come up with an interesting idea for a cool robotic experiment, form your team, and do it!
Of course, we can help and point you to interesting research-oriented or practical questions.


You should have attended at least robotics 1 and ideally robotics 2 as well.
Furthermore, it is highly recommended that each team has at least one member who attended the Robotikpraktikum at IRP or a robotics related SEP.
For the advanced platforms it is a "must-have" that you have some hands-on experience with robots and robotics.


If you're interested in attending ORL 2021/22, please contact Sven Tittel.

In the beginning, we will provide a lab tour where you are introduced to our robots, their capabilities, their software, etc.
After that, you have to define your team and your project and present them at a group meeting with the researchers at the institute.
They will give you feedback and suggestions about your idea.
Once you are officially registered, you implement your project and have fun!
In the end, you'll provide a presentation of your project including a demo for the researchers at the institute and hand in your well-documented code.


Project work
Credit points
Projects are credited depending on the student's department.
Computer science students will be granted 15 credit points as "Teamprojekt".
Others need to be negotiated on a case-by-case basis.
