We are very pleased that the successful “1. Packaging Valley Remote Makeathon 2020” by the Association Packaging Valley e.V. and ITQ GmbH has resulted in an even more successful practical semester cooperation that is already bearing fruit.
The Aalen University of Applied Sciences (Aalen UAS) took part in the “1. Packaging Valley Remote Makeathon 2020” with several mechatronics students. During the Makeathon, the students were able to get to know Syntegon, one of the leading providers of process and packaging technology, as participants and to network.
This resulted in a practical semester for the mechatronics students in which they programmed a machine learning algorithm. This tracks the hands of the worker when they intervene in the machine parts via cameras, saves the recording and finally evaluates it. Syntegon has applied for a patent for the entire system for the automatic recording of manual machine interventions.
We congratulate the entire team for the great system and the good cooperation!
