The next stage of digitisation is set to involve humans and machinery interacting in real time. The new Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop, CeTI at the TU Dresden seeks to take co-operations between humans and machines to a new level, aspiring to enable humans to interact with networked and automated systems in the real or virtual world in real time.
To achieve this goal, TU Dresden scientists from the fields of electrical engineering, communications technology, IT, psychology, neuroscience and medicine are collaborating with researchers from the TU Munich, the German Aerospace Centre, the Fraunhofer Society and international scientific institutions at the CeTI Cluster of Excellence. They conduct interdisciplinary research into key areas of human control in human-machine co-operation, software and hardware design, sensor and actuator technologies and communication networks. This research forms the basis for innovative applications in medicine, industry (Industry 4.0 co-working) and the Internet of Skills (education, rehabilitation).
