On the 12th and 13th of June 2018, the I-MECH partners gathered for their second face-to-face meeting at the Holst Centre on the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. This meeting, hosted by Sioux-CCM, took place after about a year of progress in the I-MECH project. The major focus of this meeting was to present and discuss the I-MECH methodology: a way of working and architecture which will allow a modular I-MECH motion control platform to be assembled from building blocks.
Workshops in smaller teams focused on mapping building block definitions onto the I-MECH architecture, so that building blocks will fit into the architecture and methodology. Partners involved in task groups had the opportunity to strengthen collaborations and align on the technical content of their tasks.
The gathering was accompanied by a social event in the historic centre of Den Bosch. The history of the town was explained during a boat trip on the “Binnendieze”, a series of old canals through and under the city which played an important role in the development and history of Den Bosch.
