Kuka Innovation Award 2016 Has Kicked Off

The international competition for the 2016 Kuka Innovation Award has kicked off. This year’s call for participation has been dubbed the “Flexible Manufacturing Challenge”. As of mid-August, research and development teams from across the globe have been able to submit entries for the 20,000 euro prize awarded by Kuka AG, Augsburg, Germany. The submission deadline is October 16, 2015.

The submitted developments must be implemented on a Kuka LBR iiwa (figure: Kuka)

The task for contestants is to develop an innovative robot application that is suited to the requirements of flexible manufacturing. The application that is developed must be demonstrated in a realistic working environment and support humans through direct collaboration in performing a realistic task. To enable fair comparison of the innovations, the developments must be implemented on a Kuka LBR iiwa – the sensitive lightweight robot for safe human-robot collaboration. The robot manufacturer will also provide participants with access to a Kuka flexFellow – a mobile robotic unit on which the LBR iiwa is mounted.

The international panel of judges will announce the finalists on October 26, 2015. These finalists will then have the next six months to transfer their developments to the LBR iiwa and to perfect them. The finalists will then present their applications to the specialist audience and expert jury at Hannover Messe in April 2016. The official award ceremony will also be held at the Kuka booth during the fair.

Interested researchers and developers can submit their entries to Kuka by October 16, 2015. Full details concerning the KUKA Innovation Award, the conditions of participation and the registration process as well as contact information can be found on the website dedicated to the award.
