Hackathon Mobile Manipulation

Hackathon "Mobile Manipulation"


The aim of the tutorial is to program industry-wide applications with mobile robots. The event will take place as part of the robot factory. In teams, the participants independently develop solutions for a given task from the context of mobile manipulation in order to test and consolidate the theoretical knowledge gained in the course of the event on mobile robot systems. 

The applications to be programmed during the 4-5 day block event include questions from various disciplines, such as mobile manipulation, object recognition, localization or navigation. The programming itself is carried out using the ROS (Robot Operating System) framework in the C + + programming language.

The tutorial is offered every semester during the lecture-free period.


The tutorial is part of the project roboterfabrik.

In order to make Hannover a leading robotics location, the roboterfabrik project was launched in cooperation with the Hannover Region. The project pursues a continuous approach to the training of so-called robotics natives, which begins at the school (Roberta Regio Center) and continues at the university (imes: mobile robotics, IRT: collaborative robotics).


It is planned to hold the hackathon in the summer semester 2021 during the week (27.09. to 01.10.2021). However, the concrete organization depends on the current Corona situation. Further information will be distributed via the Stud.IP group.


We recommend knowledge from the lectures Robotics I and Robotics II, as well as experience in object-oriented programming.
