Robots are able to assist people in need of care, revolutionize industrial manufacturing processes or facilitate harvesting processes. They are used in more and more areas of life and work. It is of no surprise that demand for robotic solutions is growing worldwide; the industry is booming. At the high-tech location of Dresden, renowned scientists and globally active companies are pushing the development of the new robot generation at full speed.
At Dresden University of Technology, university of excellence since 2012, new types of flexible materials, manufacturing processes and bionic robot systems inspired by nature are under development. The goal of the international teams of experts is to create adaptable solutions that will improve the co-working among people and robotic colleagues.
Mobile robots for climate-friendly cars
In the future, robots with intelligent gripper systems made of flexible materials could harvest sensitive products such as asparagus or avocados without causing any damage. Another innovation with great potential are mobile injection moulding robots, which enable the small-batch production of lightweight cars that consume less fuel and thus protect the environment.
Another special field of research at TU Dresden is the use of robotics in medicine. The focus lies, amongst others, on intelligent prosthesis components made of materials that adapt even better to their wearer. Another use case are smart therapy devices able to treat diseases such as scoliosis in children. The Else Kröner-Fresenius Center for Digital Health, a cooperation between TU Dresden and non-university partners founded in 2019, promotes research in the field of digital medicine and health.
