Kickoff for Kuka Innovation Award 2015

The international competition for the Kuka Innovation Award 2015 has begun. The submission of entries from research and developer teams in the field of robot-based automation has started at the beginning of September and will be closed in February 2015.

Teams without access to an LBR iiwa can apply to borrow an LBR iiwa free of charge for the duration of the competition (figure: Kuka)

Human-robot collaboration is the focus of this year’s call for participation, with the winning team to receive a prize of € 20,000. The challenge for the applicants is to demonstrate their application operating in a realistic working environment. In order to ensure identical conditions and thus enable a fair comparison between the participants, the application or key robotics technology is to be implemented with the Kuka LBR iiwa lightweight robot. The LBR iiwa (intelligent industrial work assistant) is the world’s first sensitive lightweight robot which can be used for safe human-robot collaboration. It opens up new areas of application for robotics – in the direct vicinity of humans and without safety fences.

Interested researchers and developers who have experience using the LBR iiwa and have access to a robot can submit their entries to Kuka by 15 February 2015. Teams without access to an LBR iiwa can apply to borrow an LBR iiwa free of charge for the duration of the competition by 15 October 2014.

At the beginning of March 2015, an international panel of judges will announce the finalists, who will have the chance to present their applications to the specialist audience at the Hanover Fair from 13 to 17 April 2015. The award will be presented to the winning team at the Kuka booth during the fair.
