Für ihre Masterarbeit bekam Fandi Bi mehrere Preise. Das Thema damals: In Unternehmen faule Kompromisse in Bezug auf mechatronische Systeme ausfindig machen – so genannte Technical Debts. In ihrer Doktorarbeit geht es der Wissenschaftlerin aus dem Lehrstuhl für Automatisierung und Informationssysteme von Prof. Birgit Vogel-Heuser der Technischen Universität München (TUM) nun darum, sie systematisch aufzulösen.

Im gerade gestarteten Horizon-Projekt euROBIN übernimmt das Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) die Koordinierung des Arbeitspaketes „Fertigung durch Roboter in der Kreislaufwirtschaft“. Zudem wird die Idee der Robothon® Grand Challenge von MIRMI erweitert durch euROBIN Robotic Challenges. Der wissenschaftliche Leiter am MIRMI Dr. Utku Culha über die Aufgaben der Forscher der Technischen Universität München (TUM).

In der Forschungsgruppe „Human Modelling and Rehabilitation Robotics“ forscht Kim Kristin Peper an der so genannten frühen Rehabilitation. Die Doktorandin am Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) schlägt in ihrer Forschungsarbeit die Brücke zwischen Coding, Robotik und Physiotherapie.

Wie Robotik den Alltag von alten Menschen und deren Pflegerinnen und Pflegern verbessern kann: Das sind die zentralen Themen, mit denen sich Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler auf dem ersten Geriatronics-Summit in Garmisch beschäftigen. Fragen an die Organisatoren der Veranstaltung und wissenschaftliche Leiter der Forschungsprojekte, Luis Da Cruz Figueredo und Abdeljallil Naceri vom MIRMI.

TUM is joining the Global Challenge Lab 2022, featuring 10-days of online workshops, guest speakers, and expert mentoring to help you hack innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. This year, participants will be working to achieve UNS SDG 13: Climate Action, in partnership with students from 14 universities across the world. Students from all disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to join!

Using smart sensor and measurement techniques to make farming more efficient and sustainable is the goal of a team of researchers at TUM.

Following many years of research at the Technical University of Munich, the start-up Ebenbuild won the digital health category at EIT Health Catapult 2022. The company aims to use AI software to generate unprecedented data on patients’ lungs and provide tailored therapy to treat acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). The pioneers behind this company are Dr. Kei Müller, Dr. Jonas Biehler, Prof. Wolfgang Wall and Dr. Karl-Robert Wichmann.

Would you like to discuss with roboticists and AI law specialists technological solutions for the Future of Health? Join the Geriatronics Summit which will be held on June 20 and June 21 at Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany. Please register to participate and/or submit a contribution before June 08.

The Innovation Radar of the European Commission (EC) featured four innovations developed in various TUM / MIRMI projects in April and May 2022. The Innovation Radar platform builds on the information and data gathered by independent experts, who review the innovations in ongoing projects funded by the European Commission and provide an independent opinion on their market potential. The independent assessment of the market potential of a publicly funded project aims to connect innovators with investors and maximize funding opportunities for European tech entrepreneurs.

As part of her M.Sc. in Medical Technologies at TUM, Veronika Spieker conducted her master thesis on the design, implementation and experimental validation of upper-limb prostheses at MIRMI. The MedtecLIVE Talent Award is supported by a top-class jury consisting of representatives from industry and research. Learn more about her story.
