Drones & Robotics face the Dark show
The University of Oulu, BISG research group will give a demonstration of the cooperation between an automated drone and Mörri, the group’s mobile ground robot. The drone will follow targets independently, and Mörri will construct an accurate map of the environment and perform various tasks suitable for a mobile robot. In addition, there will be an opportunity to try out the virtual reality user interface during the demonstration.
Autonomous Excavator Demonstration (outside)
An autonomous excavator developed by the University of Oulu introduces two different working methods for loading a truck from the ground. In the demonstration, the excavator automatically moves to the selected site where the truck is also moved. A skilful human operator teaches the excavator robot its first job using teaching driving mode. The excavator autonomously loads the truck in a trained manner. In the second demo, the excavator continues to work in fully autonomous mode, utilizing the trajectories generated from the terrain model and the machine steering model. A drone monitors and records the work process from the air. The demo ends with the truck and excavator leaving the site.
