Bending actuator for endoscopic applications

Bild zum Projekt Bending actuator for endoscopic applications

Supervisor:

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Tobias Ortmaier

Researcher:

Dipl.-Ing. Dennis Kundrat

Funded by:

German Research Foundation (DFG)

Brief description:

The main objective of this project is aimed at the disadvantages of existing endoscopic systems which consider handling and risk of injury to the patient. The development of a new actuator, the modeling of kinematics and dynamics as well as the implementation of suitable control algorithms should compensate the aforementioned criteria. The work will be carried out in close cooperation with the Institute of Drive Systems and Power Electronics (IAL).

Supervisor:

Dr.-Ing. Jessica Burgner-Kahrs

Researcher:

M.Sc. Carolin Fellmann, M.Sc. Ernar Amanov

Duration:

10/2013-09/2018

Funded by:

DFG Emmy Noether Programme

Brief description:

The Emmy Noether research group CROSS investigates continuum robots for surgical applications. In particular, CROSS research is devoted to a sub category of continuum robots so called Concentric Tube Continuum Robots (CTCR). The manipulators are composed of multiple concentric, pre-bend, and flexible tubes.

Autonomous Forklift

Researcher:

ISE/RTS

Duration:

since 2005

Funded by:

STILL GmbH

Brief description:

The Real Time Systems Group (RTS) of the Leibniz University of Hannover has developed an autonomous forklift truck, in cooperation with STILL GmbH, to facilitate flexible navigation and material handling. The forklift truck is able to recognize pallets, to lift these up and to move them to another location autonomously. The pallets, as with the usual systems, need not be placed at a pre-defined hand over point. Instead, they are recognized by using laser scanners and can be automatically lifted from varying positions and heights.
