Professor Holger Seidlitz is head of the “Polymer Materials and Composite PYCO” research area at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP since 2019. Here at the Teltow and Wildau locations, highly crosslinked polymers for lightweight construction are developed, which are used, for example, in aerospace, wind power plants or in vehicle construction. Seidlitz also takes over the professorship »Polymer-based lightweight construction« at the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg. Seidlitz studied mechanical engineering at the Lausitz University of Applied Sciences and the Chemnitz University of Technology, where he received his doctorate in 2014. Since 2008, he has been a research assistant at the Institute for Structural Lightweight Construction at the Chemnitz University of Technology with various managerial functions. He has been working at the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg since 2013, where he has been the junior professor »Lightweight Construction with Structured Materials (LsW)« since 2015

Dr. Jaspreet S. Dhupia is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Auckland (UoA), New Zealand since July 2015. Prior to joining UoA, he was an academic staff member in the School of Mechanical Engineering in Nayang Technological University, Singapore (2008-2015) and a Research Fellow at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA (2007-2008). He received his M.S. and PhD from The University of Michigan and B.Tech from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi. He has published over 80 peer-reviewed articles in journals and conferences. He is Senior Member with IEEE, and an Associate Editor with the ASME’s Dynamic Systems and Control Division. He worked with industrial collaborators ABB and Roll-Royce on funded research projects. He is also an associate investigator with the MedTech Center of Research Excellence (CoRE) and recently proposed Manufacturing, Design and Entrepreneurship CoRE. In 2015 and 2016, he was a visiting professor to the University of Michigan- Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Joint Institute.
Dr. Izabela Janowska is a CNRS Researcher in a joint laboratory between the CNRS and the University of Strasbourg in France (Institute of Chemistry and Processes for Energy, Environment and Health). She obtained her PhD degree in 2004 at the University of Lodz in Poland working on a subject related to linear and nonlinear optical properties of “push-pull” type long π-conjugated molecules. In 2015 she obtained her Habilitation degree on carbon nanostructures. Her research interests are structure-property relationships and include the tailoring of bulk and surface physico-chemical properties of π-conjugated carbon nanomaterials with integer or fractional dimension (graphene, few-layer graphene, carbon nanofibers, etc), focusing on their charge transport properties and interactions with transition metals nanoparticles, in view of, (but not limited to) electrodes and catalysis applications. She is author/co-author of 80 publications (5 patents).
CEO, FANUC Polska Sp. z o.o. is customer-oriented business unit executive with strong engineering, sales and marketing experience. His interest in science and technology began in the early childhood thus the choice of the university was a simple matter. Jędrzej Kowalczyk is a graduate of robotics and automation at the Gdańsk University of Technology. He started his professional career at FANUC, as a Technical Specialist, in 2009. He was then quickly promoted to the position of the Service Coordinator (2010), Customer Service Coordinator (2012) and a number of new challenges and opportunities opened for him. In 2014 was appointed as the new Office Manager of FANUC Polska and one year later took office as General Manager of FANUC Polska. His main goal is to deliver the latest technology used in automation of production to Polish factories with full support of FANUC local staff.

This will be about the problematic of mechanical torque amplification and the detrimental effect of contact friction on its performance (including a focus on the theoretical notion of reversibility/irreversibility) and how we can quantify the resulting default of linearity (or transparence) in quasi-static and dynamic situation. Then I will review mechanical solutions specifically developed along the history to minimize the default of torque transfer linearity and the different exploitation of this property in open loop torque control, distinguishing the transmission of force in master/slave teleoperation from force control based on equilibrium models (static or dynamic). As a central example of application, I could also detail the design of the force controlled arm exoskeleton ABLE, both in terms of its actuators (screw and cable system) and the main mechanical elements of its architecture which contribute to maximize its transparency.
