Driverless transport system creates future prospects

Offenburg - HIWIN, the specialist for drive technology is an industrial partner of the Flitzmo lighthouse project.
Flitzmo is a cross-faculty project of the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg, which has been launched in November 2018 under the direction of the university laboratory Work-Life Robotics, by Prof. Wendt. Since then, an impressive cooperation from numerous students, professors and companies such as HIWIN has been developed. The goal of the project is to develop a production and transport system that can be used for various autonomous activities of a company. Above all, the production and transport system is characterized by its omnidirectional operation, its modularity and its low-cost approach.


As a long-standing partner of the university laboratory Work-Life Robotics, which has already equipped HIWIN with an articulated robot and its peripherals, it was an obvious step to become active for the lighthouse project Flitzmo. With a monetary donation and additional support from development engineers, HIWIN has been a cooperation partner of the lighthouse project since the end of 2018.
On November 6, 2020, the project started a new round in cooperation with HIWIN: the "Young Talents" of HIWIN were included in the project. The goal was to work out new future perspectives and development opportunities for Flitzmo. For this purpose, the Flitzmo was brought to the HIWIN trainee workshop for two weeks. The trainees provided food for thought for the further development of the project. Initial suggestions have already been made for the frame, the power supply and the existing Mecanum wheels.


Innovative and autonomous - a production and transport system that can be used for numerous activities in companies. As a long-standing partner of Offenburg University of Applied Sciences, HIWIN is happy to support the Flitzmo lighthouse project.
