After two and a half years of construction, a unique experimental laboratory, the largest of its kind in Central and Eastern Europe, was inaugurated on 28 April 2022 at the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics of the Czech Technical University in Prague (CIIRC CTU). Testbed for Industry 4.0 is a research infrastructure that is being built at CTU thanks to a significant investment of EU and Czech funds within the RICAIP centre. Thanks to this, Czech industry has access to the latest scientific knowledge and applications for advanced manufacturing and modern factories of the 21st century. On this occasion, cooperation with the German Fraunhofer Institute IWU and the University of Ostrava VŠB-TUO was signed in the presence of government representatives.
The robotic competition, organized by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, was also attended by the youngest generation educated at CTU - pupils of the Lvíčata (Lion Cubs) primary school established by the university. And they certainly didn't lose their way!
