You or I could use a map to find our way around a city with no problem – but what about a robot? We still have a long way to go before robots can read maps but Prof. Martin Buss is working towards this goal as part of the “IURO” (Interactive Urban Robot) project, just one of many EU research initiatives coordinated by TUM.

How do plants regulate their fruit yield? How can cancer treatment be optimized for individual patients? TUM has the lead role in these and other (transregional) collaborative research centers. Each interdisciplinary project is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) for a period of up to 12 years. In the case of the transregional initiatives, TUM collaborates with research institutes in other German cities. More
Electric taxis for mobility in the tropics: The TUM CREATE research campus in Singapore is looking at ways to reduce CO2 emissions in tropical megacities in the long term. Its solution: electric taxis. Most private automobiles in Singapore spend little time on the roads. Taxis, on the other hand, are often shared by two or three drivers. Taxis also consume around 14 percent of all fuel in Singapore. More
Singapore is one of South-East Asia’s fastest-growing megacities. TUM set up a campus here in 2002. Since then, several hundred graduates have passed through its doors.Photo: iStock
