In today’s teaching and learning approaches for first-semester students, practical courses more and more often complement traditional theoretical lectures. This practical element allows an early insight into the real world of engineering, augments student motivation, and enables students to acquire soft skills early. This paper describes a new freshman(More)
eRobotics is a newly evolving branch of e-Systems engineering, providing tools to support the whole life cycle of robotic applications by means of electronic media. With the eRobotics methodology, the target system and its environment can be modeled, validated, and calibrated to achieve a close-to-reality simulation. In this contribution, we present(More)

Many research efforts in human-robot interaction (HRI) have so far focussed on the mechanical design of intrinsically safe robots, as well as impedance control for tasks in which human and robot will work together. However, comparatively little attention is paid to an approach that ensures safety and permits close HRI while dispensing human with the(More)
Besides lectures of theoretical foundations, contemporary teaching and learning concepts for first semester students consider more and more practically motivated courses. In this context, a new first-year student introduction course in practical engineering is established in the first semester curriculum of Electrical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University,(More)
Virtual Testbeds enable simulations which are at the same time comprehensive on system level and detailed on component level regarding all relevant inner and outer dependencies of complex technical systems. Virtual Testbeds are able to accurately predict the behavior of such systems with respect to different system states, environmental conditions or input(More)
