ProtecT became the winner of the Medical Robotics for Contagious Diseases Challenge 2021 in the Design category. ProteCT, a project in the scope of the lighthouse initiative Geriatronics, developed a Telemedical Diagnostic Framework that enables a modular, robot-based contactless examination. Such telediagnostic solutions ensure the stability of the health system in crises with a high incidence of infections like the global outbreak of COVID-19. The winning team received a £5,000 GBP prize.

The State of Bavaria is supporting the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and a consortium of industrial partners with a total of 15 million euros in their efforts to develop the first prototype of an artificial intelligence-based factory ("KI.FABRIK") in Bavaria by 2030. Multifunctional, highly sensitive robots will use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to co-work with humans both directly and over long distances.

Kick-off for the factory of the future: The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) is starting - as announced by the Bavarian state government in its high-tech agenda - its flagship initiative for the first KI.FABRIK in Bavaria. The KI.FABRIK Bayern is a completely flexible and networked location for the local, crisis-proof and profitable production of the most modern IT and mechatronic high-tech components in Bavaria. Take part via livestream when the MSRM of TUM lays the foundation stone for the lighthouse initiative KI.FABRIK…

Alexander König, Gründer von Reactive Robotics, spricht über VEMO, einen Roboter entwickelt, der Intensivpatienten beim Laufen unterstützen soll und die Zusammenarbeit mit der MSRM.

Prof. Hendrik Dietz and Prof. Dr. Wolfgang A. Wall, Principal Investigators affiliated with MSRM, won ERC Advanced Grants to develop artificial viruses from DNA origami and create a computer model of the human lungs using AI.

The “Modeling and Rehabilitation Robotics” research team developed a safe and minimalistic control and learning (AI) algorithm, which automatically finds and provides the optimal balance between rigid support and “soft” guidance for any given patient during therapy. This assist-as-needed (AAN) control strategy is being commercialized in collaboration with the high-tech startup Reactive Robotics and Schön Klinik Bad Aibling, as part of a robotic assistive device called VEMO, used for the early rehabilitation of ICU patients.

TUM Venture Labs aim to strengthen the startup ecosystem and attract more technological capital in the greater Munich area. The initiative offers educational programs, venturing support, and an ecosystem consisting of events, networks, and infrastructure that interdisciplinary teams can use to bring research results and ideas into a viable business venture. One of the many venture labs is the TUM Venture Lab Robotics/AI.

Ein Forschungsteam der Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence hat ein neues Frühwarnsystem für autonome Fahrzeuge entwickelt, das mit Künstlicher Intelligenz aus Tausenden realen Verkehrssituationen lernt. Eine Studie in Zusammenarbeit mit der BMW Group zeigt, dass das System bei heutigen selbstfahrenden Entwicklungsfahrzeugen bereits sieben Sekunden im Voraus mit mehr als 85 Prozent Genauigkeit vor einer potenziell kritischen Situation warnen kann, die die Autos noch nicht allein meistern können.

Eines unserer CyberTum-Teams wird beim Powered Arm Prosthesis Race bei der CYBATHLON-Meisterschaft der ETH Zürich antreten. Simona Klima, der Pilot von Cybaria One, wird diese Prothese in sechs Aufgaben an der Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence einsetzen.
