29.08.2022 – Innovative Research Discussion


Meeting notes on the 29th of August, 2022

Location: Chair of CPS

Date & Time: 29th August, 2022, 11:30 am to 12.00 noon

Participants: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Elmar Rueckert, Linus Nwankwo, M.Sc.



  1. Discussion of the research progress
  2. Discussion on the Hardware-X journal publication 
  3. Discussion of the next project after hardware-X submission

Topic 1: Journal Publication - Hardware-X

  1.  Re-design the robot base for the hardware-X publication
  2. Publish the following file:
    • CAD files including the URDF
    • ROS nodes and schematics
    • Show some experimental results e.g real-time control and monitoring with ROS-Mobile and Android-based devices; remote control from Arduino and joystick etc.
    • Perform SLAM and demonstrate some experiment.

Topic 2:  Conference paper for possible publication in IROS, ECMR etc:

  1.  Open source open shuttle (O2S) for SLAM and navigation applications:  – Compare the existing SLAM algorithms for efficient navigation in a cluttered and dynamic environment
  2. O2S intention signalling: – for safe human-robot interaction (HRI) using intention signalling.
  3. Mobile robot teleoperation through hand gestures approach (possible for publication at the National European conference )
  4. Deep navigation with O2S (proposal for Christoper M.Sc. thesis – subject to changes pending the outcome of the meeting on Friday)

Future Steps

Survey of open-shuttles in logistics:  Possible for A.I based journal publication
