FZI Forschungszentrum Informatik Karlsruhe

The FZI Research Center Computer Science is an independent research organization that supports companies and public institutions to use the latest developments in computer science as the key to innovative technologies.

The focus is on application research and technology transfer. A focal point of the FZI fields Intelligent Systems and Production Engineering (ISPE) and Information Process Engineering (IPE) involved in this project are the development of robust robot systems, adaptive robot controls (eg locomotion, navigation, mapping and mobile manipulation), environment perception and autonomous behavioral decision.

The aim of the work in the field of service robotics and technically cognitive systems is the (partially) autonomous use of modular and flexible systems to support and relieve the human being in routine work as well as dangerous work for humans.

Another focus is on semantic technologies - such as ontology management, knowledge base modeling, semantic search, intelligent complex event processing, process and service management, big data analytics, pattern recognition and logistics optimization.

The participating areas are closely linked with the chairs of Prof. Dr.-Ing. R. Dillmann and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Marius Zöllner (Humanoids and Intelligence Systems Laboratories (HIS), Applied Cognitive Systems) at the Institute of Anthropomatics (IFA) and with the research group of Prof. Dr. Sure-Vetter (Web Science) at the Institute for Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).
