Autonomous robots are also expected to be used, for example, as transport robots in industrial scenarios. Unlike rigidly programmed systems, they can adapt their behavior to current conditions and change their route if obstacles block the way. If they get into situations for which they cannot find a solution themselves and need outside help, they initiate a transfer of control (ToC). The technology is being addressed in the TRACTAT project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and its successor CAMELOT, and is finding influence in the German-Czech EU project RICAIP, where it is being extended to include aspects of distributed production. In the live broadcast, RICAIP director Dr. Tilman Becker and DFKI scientist Dr. Tim Schwartz will present the concepts and ideas developed using two practical demonstrators.
