MSRM (from 01. October 2021 new: MIRMI - Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence) had the honor of being donated a CASPAR robot for surgical applications from the chair for experimental orthopedics lead by Prof. Dr. Rainer Burgkart.

TUM and project partners have completed 4.5 years of research. The ILIAD project was funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program and developed robotic solutions that can integrate with current warehouse facilities, extending the state of the art to achieve self-deploying fleets of heterogeneous robots in multiple-actor systems.

Robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are playing a vital role in driving technological change. But their design also harbors the potential to take on new tasks in the development of processes and products. A new exhibition in the New Collection section of the modern art museum Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich explores the origins, history, current developments and the future of robotics and AI in four chapters. Planned by Prof. Sami Haddadin and implemented with his team, the exhibition will open on July 16, 2021.

On June 18, 2020, the International Foundation of Robotics Research (IFRR) launched The Robotics Global Colloquia, a series of online live events conceived as a platform for open discussion and interaction on diverse topics in robotics - from research and applications to social impact and ethical issues. In a year-long of 25 events, the Colloquia featured some of the major themes in the field, engaging the scientific and public communities across the globe.

When we are old, who takes care of us? Because in 30 years the demographic change will be in full swing: 6.1 million people in Germany who need to be cared for and too few people who look after them. That doesn't work. That means we need a solution! One option are robots in care. The Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence team develop robots that could support and relieve the nursing staff. Beta stories shows in this documentary what robots can already do in care and why we will need care robots in the future.

Reflexes protect our bodies – for example when we pull our hand back from a hot stove. These protective mechanisms could also be useful for robots. In this interview, Prof. Sami Haddadin and Johannes Kühn of the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MSRM) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) explain why giving test subjects a “slap on the hand” could lay the foundations for the robots of the future.
