The “Center for Tactile Internet with Human-In-the-Loop” at TU Dresden aims to take collaboration between humans and machines to a new level.

In the future, humans should be able to interact in real time with networked automated systems in the real or virtual world. To achieve this goal, scientists from TU Dresden in the fields of electrical and communications engineering, computer science, psychology, neuroscience and medicine are working together with researchers from TU Munich, the German Aerospace Center and the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft as well as international scientific institutions in the Cluster of Excellence CeTI. Interdisciplinarily, they explore key areas of human control in human-machine cooperation, software and hardware design, sensor and actuator technologies, and communication networks.

The research is the basis for novel applications in medicine, industry (Industry 4.0, Co-working) and the ‘Internet of Skills’ (education, rehabilitation).

CeTI creates an international, open and flexible environment to train the next generation of outstanding researchers and foster their careers. By fostering technology transfer, CeTI aims to accompany fundamental technological change while incorporating the accompanying societal issues into developments.
