Start-up sewts succeeds with AI-based industrial robots

TUM graduates create robots to work with flexible textiles

The industrial robots from the Munich-based start-up sewts use AI algorithms to learn how to handle materials with unstable shapes. Laundries are already using the technology to automatically transfer towels to folding machines. The founders and graduates of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) now want to automate the processing of clothing returns in online retail.

Working group aims to ensure trust in research

Guidelines for the use of AI in science

Artificial intelligence (AI) generates texts, videos and images that can hardly be distinguished from those of humans – with the result that we often no longer know what is real. Scientists are also increasingly being assisted by AI. Now, an international working group has developed principles for using AI in research to ensure trust in science.

From skill sets to an overall concept

GARMI care robot becomes a universal assistant

For the first time, the assistance robot GARMI demonstrates that it can directly combine specific skills and support seniors throughout the day. With the help of a digital twin, artificial intelligence and ChatGPT, the care assistant from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) conducts caregiving tasks such as bringing water and breakfast to the bedside, booking medical appointments and setting up and facilitating telemedical examinations. It also helps care recipients to get out of bed and do rehabilitation exercises.

Combining robotics and ChatGPT

TUM professor uses ChatGPT for choreographies with flying robots

Prof. Angela Schoellig from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) uses ChatGPT to develop choreographies for swarms of drones to perform along to music. An additional safety filter prevents mid-air collisions. The researchers' results demonstrate that large language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT can be used in robotics.

TUM Autonomous Motorsports wins spectacular race in Abu Dhabi

Victory for TUM AI racers on Formula 1 track

The TUM vehicle controlled by artificial intelligence has achieved first place in an international race on the Formula 1 track in Abu Dhabi. Without a human driver or remote control, using only the superior autonomous software, the fully automated vehicle was able to prevail against seven other international teams with identical racing cars. It independently searched for the limits, mastered spectacular overtaking maneuvers and speeds of up to 250 km/h on the winding track.
