IRT is award winner in the "Germany - Land of Ideas" initiative
With the idea on "Learning and communicating prostheses" the Institute of Automatic Control directed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Sami Haddadin gives a positive answer to the formation of an interconnected world. The idea implies innovative, intelligent and reactive arm prostheses with human like sensitivity and flexibility. Based on the function of the human arm these prostheses shall be equipped with unseen human like sensitivity, related reflexes, and especially with partially autonomous behavior. Moreover, the systems shall learn from each other via a cloud based "exchange of experiences".
