Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM)
Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) is a top-ranked academic and research institution in Germany, as consistently cited in several independent rankings in recent years. It provides an excellent research and teaching environment with substantial funding from the Bavarian state government. One of the missions of the University is to boost interdisciplinary research between engineering, medicine, and humanities. The TUM has earned a high international reputation, apparent from research collaborations with more than 140 partner Universities, hundreds of research projects, financed by the European Community and the German Federal Ministry of Science, as well as 17 special research programs supported by the DFG. TUM pursues a sustainable strategy of promoting high quality research and supports scientists at each stage of their career development. The contribution of TUM to the RAMCIP is made by the Chair of Information-oriented Control (ITR) led by Prof. Sandra Hirche, with a support of the Chair of Automatic Control Engineering(LSR) led by Prof. Martin Buss. Both chairs are located within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at TUM. The ITR and the LSR have a broad experience in the control of mechatronic and robotic systems, in particular in the field of complex robotic systems such as intelligent mobile robots with arms and complex kinaesthetic feedback systems as part of multi-modal systems for human-system interaction with a special emphasis on physical human-robot interaction.
