This year’s Austrian Robotics Workshop (ARW) took place from the 10. – 12. May 2017 in Vienna’s Palais Eschenbach. The event combined the research fields of Computer Vision and Robotics and thus addressed the mutual interests of both disciplines. The workshop offered an ideal platform for research institutes with a respective focus for publishing their projects and research results. Furthermore, university students had the possibility to present their bachelor or master thesis to a specialist audience. Additionally, another essential focus of the event was laid on practical applications and the latest industrial developments.
The concept of the RobWood project was showcased within the framework of a poster presentation in the Austrian Robotics Workshop and included all of the essential software components of the project as well as the meaning and efficiency of the process sequence. For RobWood, the Austrian Robotics Workshop was a good opportunity to show current active work and research in the fields of automatization and flexibilization of wood processing.
