German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH)
Autonomous mobile Robots and Cyber-Physical Systems
The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), with locations in Kaiserslautern, Saarbrücken and Bremen, a project office in Berlin, a laboratory in Niedersachsen and a branch office in St. Wendel, is the leading research center in Germany in the field of innovative software technology using Artificial Intelligence. The location in Bremen was founded in 2006. Here, more than 255 employees ensure a high standard of research at the Robotics Innovation Center and the Cyber-Physical Systems department.
The Robotics Innovation Center (RIC), headed by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Frank Kirchner, develops mobile robot systems that solve complex tasks under water, in space, and in our everyday life. The goal is to design robots that operate autonomously and interact safely with humans, their environment, and other systems. The RIC closely cooperates with the Robotics Group at the University of Bremen.
The Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) group, headed by Prof. Dr. Rolf Drechsler, has its research focus on the technical design of intelligent, networked systems in particular with regard to the safety, security and correctness of these increasingly complex systems. CPS and the Computer Architecture Group at the University of Bremen are closely cooperating.
