“Integration of 3D-Sensors into an Industrial Robot System”
Industrial robots often are used to pick and place objects which are placed in an unsorted pattern. Goal of the project is to identify the objects by using a 3D time-of-flight camera and to control a professional industrial robot in order to pick those objects and to place them into a given pattern.
“Solar cook & look”
Parabolic solar collectors can be used to gain high temperatures. A simple, but efficient way to use those heating devices is to cook meals. This kind of ovens are widely used in developing countries. An alternative usage for such collectors is to concentrate satellite and other electromagnetic signals to a receiver. The goal of the project was the analyzation of such possibilities and to create a demonstration scenario for such solutions.
“Aluminium welding and casting in automotive industry”
Aluminium processing, especially casting of Aluminium, is complex and has a lot of challenges. In this project, students worked on highly optimized casting models to be used for Aluminium casts.

“It was the best idea to come to Germany and to study a semester here. I met really good friends and I learned a lot about international team work. Project principals are so friendly that one will hardly feel any problem in communicating and discussing any problems with them. What I liked the most is that we didn’t spend time just in the lab, we also travelled and hung out together. I hope this friendship will continue even if we are far away. I strongly recommend you to try EPS program, it will be a life changing experience for all!“
“Luckily I was wise enough to go on exchange to Osnabrück. I have been very fortunate to have the chance to work with the people that I have in my team. Since we are all from different countries we are all a bit different, which gives us a lot to learn from each other. We have been working great as a team with the right amount of seriousness and fun. One of the best things is that we also spend time together on our free time which takes us all closer together. I really hope that we all will meet each other after our time in Osnabrück has come to an end.“
