At TUM, the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence is carrying out cutting-edge interdisciplinary research into AI and robotics for everyday life.
At THI, guest professor Alessandro Zimmer is strengthening collaborations between Bavaria and Latin America, driving research in AI and mobility engineering across the globe.
At JMU Würzburg, Professor Laurens W. Molenkamp and his team are conducting pioneering work on topological materials. With its cutting-edge technology, the new Institute for Topological Insulators will be the ideal place for them to develop this research.
While the number of qubits and the stability of quantum states are still limiting current quantum computing devices, there are questions where these processors are already able to leverage their enormous computing power. In collaboration with the Google Quantum AI team scientists from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and the University of Nottingham used a quantum processor to simulate the ground state of a so-called toric code Hamiltonian – an archetypical model system in modern condensed matter physics, which was originally proposed in the context of quantum error correction.
In microelectronics, we know that the smaller, more efficient and more mobile microchips are, the more diverse their applications. Professor Michael Sternad from the Deggendorf Institute of Technology (DIT) has found a way to produce microchips with an integrated battery. The mini-battery is powerful and very easy to produce. No one else in the world has ever succeeded in this dimension. The advantage: microchips with a battery can be used autonomously and in a variety of ways. Michael Sternad has now published the results of his scientific work and would like to get in touch with interested parties.
Using telemedicine, COVID-19 patients can be cared for safely at home – from initial home isolation to recovery or, in case problems arise, admission to hospital. A team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has now successfully demonstrated this in a study involving 150 patients with risk factors for a severe progression of the disease.
Using a sensor film to monitor how well aircraft and spacecraft withstand the mechanical stresses of flight: Würzburg researchers have received a prize for this idea, which comes with a lot of money.
A team at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has designed and commissioned the production of a computer chip that implements post-quantum cryptography very efficiently. Such chips could provide protection against future hacker attacks using quantum computers. The researchers also incorporated hardware trojans in the chip in order to study methods for detecting this type of “malware from the chip factory”.
Landshut University of Applied Sciences is researching innovative power electronics for vehicles with fuel cells – with the objective of improving weight, costs and efficiency.
The vision of autonomous driving is constantly drawing ever nearer and apart from major economic success, it promises improved traffic safety. But with the development and implementation of self-driving vehicles at the latest, manufacturers now have to deal with a new challenge that the traditional IT industry has long had to deal with: cyber attacks. The ISO 21434 standard defines the path to more security in the future. With its white paper “Security Engineering for ISO 21434”, fortiss is for the first time providing a practical implementation guideline for engineers in the automobile industry.
