OUR TESTIMONIALS 2021

Judith Gerlach
"We are facing two major challenges. First, how can digital technologies like Al and robotics transform our life for the better. And second, how can we protect our beautiful planet. For me, these goals are not opposed to each other, but must be considered together. I am very glad and proud to see the Robothon® and all participating teams demonstrate how this can work!"

This year’s Robothon® challenge adresses both, the key challenge of future automated waste sorting and the key role AI plays in sensor data fusion, skill development and trusted execution in shared robot human environments. The challenge therefor is a valuable contribution solving actual society needs and acceptance of trusted technologies.

I was impressed by the performance of all the teams. In a very short time, these young bright minds have created amazingly robust and also creative solutions. As I am currently putting together a new team, I would especially like to give all participants a chance at possible dissertation positions.
