Team GRIPS was started in autumn of 2015 in the course
Construction of Mobile Robots. The team works on artificial intelligence as well as the representation and processing of knowledge, with the robots as an application of these methodologies. As a way of comparing these technologies with others in a standardized way, the team takes part in robotics competitions and the RoboCup World Championships. The team enters the competitions in the
Logistics league in which fully autonomous robots intelligently and flexibly put production steps into practice.
With GRIPS you can implement your own ideas and put the theory acquired in courses to the test. Trying out your ideas in a real setting naturally facilitates the understanding of complex theoretic matters. Being part of the GRIPS team is especially motivating as one can work on a realistic and practice-based project. Developing a functioning solution for problems and overcoming challenges as a team is what excites me most about GRIPS.
In the Logistics League, teams of 3 robots fabricate products fully autonomously in a real-time race against other 3-robot teams in a factory. This league simulates the challenges that the next industrial revolution (Industrie 4.0) is posing.
