Our lighthouse projects in Robotics & Artificial Intelligence

ONE MUNICH: Human Centered Robotics (HCR)

ONE MUNICH - Human Centered Robotics (HCR): Developing robotics for applications in the health sector.

Digital Heart Surgery

The Digital Heart Surgery: Improving diagnosis and therapy of heart diseases. Using innovations from robotics to find new insights for the treatment of heart disease: The Digital Heart Surgery lighthouse project, in which the German Heart Institute Munich is involved alongside MIRMI, started in 2019 with this goal.


To enable the elderly and people in need of care to live independently for as long as possible with the help of robotics, mechatronics and artificial intelligence: Since 2018, a team of scientists and industry partners from the Technical University of Munich has been working on this goal.


The focus of tomorrow's manufacturing is not on large quantities, but on the vision of batch size 1. The technological basis for this is being researched in the lighthouse project KI.FABRIK BAYERN.
