To help you to get a clear view on the state of the art of indoor and outdoor positioning technologies the Mechatronics 4.0 team organises a masterclass seminar on positioning technologies.
Recently, the importance of positioning in our daily life has increased significantly. In this seminar we will focus on localisation technologies that can be used in industrial and logistic environments, to localise both assets or goods and mobile systems/vehicles.
This masterclass seminar will be entirely in English.
Welcome and introduction to the Mechatronics VIS Traject
Overview of the available localisation techniques, how can they make my system autonomous? A path towards the realisation of autonomous systems is presented, identifying the main challenges and illustrating that localisation systems are key. dr. Andrei Bartic, Program Manager Smart Monitoring & Autonomous Systems, Flanders Make
Anybody can build an autonomous system! This presentation will give you a look at how to capture the real world into a virtual model and how to use this in combination with a localisation system to navigate in these virtual and real worlds. Dr.ir. Erik Hostens, Project Manager, Flanders Make
Company Testimonial I Testimonial about the use of localisation in an industrial environment (BLE, …) Jason Scrivens, RFID Business Unit Manager, Aucxis
Benchmarking of different localisation techniques Prof. dr.ir. Eli De Poorter, IMEC / UGent
Low-cost and accurate determination of the position and motion of vehicles Everybody is interested in autonomous systems, but not at all prices. This talk gives an overview, illustrated with experimental results, of low-cost means for an accurate determination of the position and motion of vehicles, for on road as well as off road. Erwin Rademakers, Senior Research Engineer, Flanders Make
Low-cost and accurate determination of the position and motion of vehicles (S-Max)
Localisation, navigation and tracking of an AGV (Youbot)
Wireless Testbed localisation demo
Using UWB technology and sensor fusion for navigation of an AGV – Octinion Case The talk will discuss the concept, methodology, challenges and results of using UWB technology fused with inertial measurement unit and wheels encoder for autonomous navigation of an AGV. Risang Gatot Yudanto, Flanders Make
Use Case: localisation of an AGV in a Smart Factory In our labs in Diepenbeek and Kortrijk we made demonstrators in which an AGV transports workpieces between several operation cells. This presentation gives an overview of the results and leasons learned. Filiep Vincent, Sirris
This event is meant for electrical/mechatronic engineers, project engineers, automation engineers, E&I engineers, technical managers and asset managers, active in manufacturing and process industries and logistics, original equipment manufacturers and system integrators (SMEs and large enterprises).
