Project AMADEE-24: The Dress rehearsak 1 took place from 31Aug2023 to 03Sep2023 in the community of Peuerbach, Upper Austria (about 1 hour driving west of Linz). It is the first out of two Dress Rehearsals allowing for team-specific training, procedure rehearsals, integrated sim-sims.more
The Chair Computer Science XVII at the University of Würzburg is pleased to confirm its collaboration with the European Space Agency (ESA) on a research project concerning lunar exploration. The project, titled "Control of Spherical Robots for Lunar Cave Exploration Using Telescopic Linear Actuators for Locomotion," is a significant contribution to the field of space robotics.
Prof. Walter Baur worked with LuRI bachelor students to build and test model aeroplanes in the robotics hall and on our testing area for outdoor robots.
The paper titled "Online Learning of Neural Surface Light Fields alongside Real-time Incremental 3D Reconstruction" proposes a novel Neural Surface Light Fields model that copes with the small range of view directions while producing a good result in unseen directions. Exploiting recent encoding techniques, the training of our model is highly efficient.more

We have qualified for the AMADEE-24 mission! The simulation of human-robot operations could be an essential tool in future Mars missions. The previous AMADEE missions led by the Austrian Space Forum (ÖWF), have
shown that robotic systems in the form of UAVs or UGVs can support astronauts very well
in their field missions.more
With a very international group, the fifth batch of 'Satellite Technology' students begin their masters studies in Würzburg.
The President of the Würzburg-Schweinfurt Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Dr. Klaus D. Mapara, presented the 30,000-euro University Sponsorship Award of the Main-Franconian economy to Professor Dr. Andreas Nüchter from the Chair of Robotics at the University of Würzburg. The money will go towards the further development of artificial intelligence (AI) in the Main-Franconian economy.
