Bachelor Project: Camera based gripper control for mobile robots

Tutor: Simon Janzon & Alexander J. Golkowski

The goal of the bachelor project is to introduce students to mobile robotics and the challenges associated with it. In this project, a mobile robot serves as the base on which the implementations are tested. Depending on their interest, students can either use an existing small robotic arm or build a small arm/gripper themselves, learning the basics of CAD and/or PCB design. The logic of the robot is controlled using the OpenSource library OpenCV via a camera and, depending on interest, the use of neural networks can also be considered.

For the project we expect a high degree of motivation from the students to learn new skills and languages. Ideally, prior knowledge of the languages C++ or Python exists, but is not a requirement.
The number of participants is limited and requires an advance registration with us. If you are interested, please contact Simon Janzon or Alexander J. Golkowski

Participants will be added by us to a Moodle course, where the procedures and the project material will be made available. The kick-off meeting will take place on 09.10.2023 at 10.00 am in room SA-126, further registration is not possible. Participation in the kickoff meeting is mandatory.

This course may be held in German and English depending on the participants. The project is suitable for students at the bachelor level. If you are not sure whether you fulfill the requirements or if you have any questions, please send an email to or
