Sometimes tools can serve different purposes. Last weekend GARMI, the service robot developed to care for elderly people, handed over trophies to the winners of the 2022 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup - Women to avoid COVID-19 contagions. We tell you some highlights and impressions of the event in this video. GARMI has been under development at the TUM Geriatronics Research Center in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Munich, Bavaria, Germany.
By today’s signing of their cooperation agreement, the Technical University of Munich (TUM), the University of
Augsburg (UNIA), and the Munich School of Philosophy (HFPH) have laid the foundation stone for the joint “Center
for Responsible AI Technologies”, which will bring philosophical, ethical and social science issues into the
development of AI technologies in an integrated approach to research.
The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has chosen Prof. Nassir Navab as an IEEE Fellow for
2022. Navab is head of the Chair for Computer Aided Medical Procedures and Augmented Reality at TUM. The
IEEE recognizes Navab's outstanding achievements in augmented reality-based applications in medicine and
A TUM Team has developed software that lets race cars compete in motorsports without a driver. The TUM
Autonomous Motorsport Team was able to take 1st and 2nd place at the Autonomous Challenges in Indianapolis
and most recently at the CES in Las Vegas. Does this technology have the potential to revolutionize racing?
Markus Lienkamp, Professor for automotive technology, tells us the answer
For cardiac arrest victims, minutes can mean the difference between life and death. It’s vital that medical
emergency response teams get to them quickly, but in more remote, rural areas this can sometimes be difficult.
“HORYZN” is an initiative of students of the Institute of Flight System Dynamics, chaired by Prof. Florian
Holzapfel, at TUM and has developed a remote-controlled, AI-supported rescue drone with a defibrillator on
board for just such emergencies
A method to shed unprecedented views into skin diseases: That was the goal when the INNODERM project was
launched in 2016 under the leadership of TUM. It has yielded a novel imaging modality that can see deeper and
with higher discrimination beneath the skin surface than any competing method today. The project has now been
chosen as the winner of the European Commission’s 2021 ECS Innovation Award
Prof. Johannes Fottner and Professor Magnus Fröhling received the TUM Sustainability Award on behalf of the
CirculaTUM research network during the Dies Academicus. The interdisciplinary network was founded to bundle
the diverse competencies of TUM for a resource-efficient circular economy and to actively contribute to the
corresponding industrial and societal transformation. The prize honors research work, technical innovations, and
approaches to solutions that can make decisive contributions to the sustainable transformation of the economy
and society and to overcoming the climate…
The Indy Autonomous Challenge was held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Saturday – a race completely without drivers. Nine teams from universities around the world competed against one another with race cars controlled using Artificial Intelligence (AI). The Technical University of Munich (TUM) team made the best time with an average speed of 218 kilometers per hour. That won the young researchers first place and a cash prize of one million US dollars.
A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has been working in the Providentia and Providentia++ projects to equip busy roads with advanced sensor technology. With artificial intelligence (AI), the data are digitally twinned to create a model of the real-world traffic situation. In this interview project leader Alois Knoll, a professor of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Embedded Systems, explains the underlying vision – and what needs to be done to keep pace with the future of digital mobility.
BayWa AG will provide substantial financial support to the TUM Venture Lab Food-Agro-Biotech (FAB). The TUM Venture Labs, launched by the Technical University of Munich and UnternehmerTUM, compare favorably with the world’s leading start-up incubator programs. Specifically targeting key technology fields, they create dynamic ecosystems that bring together start-ups, research, investors and established companies. In the fields of sustainable agriculture and healthy nutrition, "we expect natural sciences and life sciences to join forces with artificial intelligence, robotics and sensor…
