Second General Assembly (At Fraunhofer IML in Dortmund)

At our first periodical General Assembly Meeting and Workshop Day which took place at the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML) in Dortmund on June 28 and 29, the state of play for all work packages was discussed intensely. Also at this meeting, the SafeLog Advisory Board members were introduced to the partners and to our proposed work. The consortium is happy to benefit from the vast experience and knowledge of our Advisory Board!

The next day, an in-depth presentation on the software and System Architecture used at our partner organizations and a discussion on Safety Concept and the Safety Vest followed. The target that we aim for is to have a clear vision of the working environment and conditions very soon and find possible safety approaches to work on for the next 42 months. Our hardware will be set up in a way so that safety is intrinsically included in the design as much as possible and doesn’t rely on systems performing always as foreseen. An intense discussion about the different choices of communication and the possible channels to be used closed the discussion.

Finally, we visited the labs of the IML to get to know the institute and the research being done there. Especially we focused on the possible demonstration setup.
