Saarbrücken engineers develop sensor-free smart wheel technology

(Saarland University) At this year's Hannover Messe, Matthias Nienhaus and his research group from Saarland University will be exhibiting a technology that not only allows wheels to 'know' when and how to rotate, but also enables them to work together in interactive teams. The new technology can be used wherever there is a need for additional support when pulling, pushing or driving a system that uses wheels.
