Role in the project
TUM will collaborate actively with IDIADA in the definition of the comfort model and with IBV in the experimental sessions that will be carried out in its dynamic simulator. Basically TUM:
Will adapt its dynamic simulator to the use cases and scenarios defined by IDIADA and IBV
Will support the testing in the dynamic simulator to assess comfort and emotional response.
The Technische Universität München (TUM) is one of the largest and in terms of third-party funding, one of the most successful universities in Germany. In 2006 it was appointed to be one of only three “top level elite universities” by the German National Science Foundation (DFG). There are numerous interdepartmental, coordinated activities taking place in the fields of formal verification, control theory, embedded systems, robotics, automated driving, and smart grids. The Department of Informatics is one of the largest and most well-equipped computer science departments in Germany and has a long tradition of industry collaboration. The chair of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence and Real-time Systems currently manages several projects: Coordination of ECHORD++ (€25 million, approx. 100 partners, 10/2013 – 01/2019), coordination of the Neurorobotics SubProject (SP10) within the EU Flagship Human Brain Project (HBP, €20 million, 10/2013 - 03/2020), coordination of TACMAN (€2.4 million, 4 partners, 01/2014-12/2017), and quality management of SMART-E (€4 million, 8 partners, 11/2013 - 10/2017). Under Horizon 2020 the project UnCoVerCPS, Unifying Control and Verification of Cyber-Physical Systems, was granted (10 partners, €5 million, 01/2015 – 12/2019), and the project HORSE under the umbrella of “Factories of the Future” (€8.9 million, 11/2015 - 04/2020). Further, the Chair is an active partner of the project ESMERA European SMEs Robotics applications (€8 million, 01-2018 – 02-2022), TERRInet The European Research Infrastructure Network (€5 million, 12-2017 – 11-2021), and TETRAMAX Technology Transfer via Multinational Application Experiments Network (€7 million, 09-2017 – 08-2021). The department of Informatics employs world-renowned researchers in formal verification, embedded systems, communications technologies and systems design.
