On April 13, 2018, the Lange Nacht der Forschung (en.: long night of research) invited the public, young and old alike, to take a glance at various research and scientific projects. GRIPS used this opportunity to present their work, achievements and vision. Whilst talking to the team members, visitors could watch one of the GRIPS robots autonomously navigating the simulated production facility and working with a machine to fabricate a product. Visitors got an impression of the state-of-the-art knowledge in robotics and in-depth information on GRIPS itself, Industry 4.0 and robotics. We were especially elated to talk to so many young people that showed avid interest in robotics.
