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: Heart Surgery of the Future

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.

Geriatronics: Robotics in Care

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.

KI.FABRIK BAYERN: Manufacture with AI, Cloud and Robotics

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.



Jugend forscht Regional Competition Munich-West: 63 teams participate

Under the motto "Get Your Head Around It," more than one hundred and fifty students will tinker at the Gymnasium Munich-North on March 6th and 7th, 2024, as part of the Regional Youth Research Competition for new solutions. The teams from the western part of Munich are participating in the "Schüler experimentieren" category, while the older students are participating in the "Jugend forscht" category in seven different disciplines, including the working world, biology, and mathematics/informatics. The winners will be honored on Thursday, March 7th, starting at 16:45.

Robotics in production: AI plans flexibly

With the help of a new software, researchers from the Chair of Applied Mechanics and the Chair of Materials Handling, Material Flow, Logistics at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) control a mobile robot system. The robot arms mounted on it can take on tasks even during transport. The artificial intelligence (AI) used immediately adjusts its plans as needed, saving time and being highly efficient. Scientist Jonas Wittmann talks about the new solution.
