CeTI’s central vision is to enable humans to interact in quasi real-time with cyber-physical systems (CPS) in the real or virtual world over intelligent wide-area communication networks. Such advances go far beyond the current state-of-the-art approaches in computer and engineering sciences: intelligent communication networks and adaptive CPS for quasi real-time co-operations with humans require online mutual learning mechanisms, which are crucial challenges.

To tackle these challenges, CeTI will conduct unique interdisciplinary research and will address major open research topics in key areas of the complexity of human control in the human–machine loop, sensor and actuator technologies, software and hardware designs, and the communication networks as the basis for several novel use cases grouped in medicine, industry, and the Internet of Skills.

Summer University 2021 (27 July and 10 August 2021)

During the summer holidays, pupils can gain interesting insights into science and technology, take part in exciting experiments and find out about STEM studies at TU Dresden during the Summer University. The groups will also visit the Cluster of Excellence CeTI. In an online and a face-to-face workshop, we will take a look at the effects of digitalisation on society and careers. The participants will get the technical input explained using practical examples and can exchange the knowledge gained in group work.

CeTI International Summer School 2021

Save the Date +++ 21 until 23 September 2021 +++ for CeTI’s International Summer School 2021. The motto of this year’s CeTI Summer School is “Smart Textiles & Wearables”. International experts will give participants exciting insights into their research in scientific lectures. The topics include wearable robots, the processing of sensitive personal data and the application of wearables in the medical field. In addition to scientific lectures, the participants will also have the opportunity to strengthen important soft skills together in workshops (e.g. interdisciplinary work, 3D printing). The programme of the Summer School is rounded off by visits to various CeTI laboratories, presentations by the participants and an exciting team event.
The registration form and further information about the agenda can be found here

CeTI Women’s Network Lecture Series (29.7.2021)

The Cluster of Excellence CeTI invites you to the kick-off event of the Women’s Network Lecture Series. Once a quarter, top-class female scientists and experts are invited to give a lecture. This is followed by an informal round of exchange between the speaker and the members of the CeTI Women’s Network. This event format is intended to make role models visible and to stimulate exchange. The expert lecture is open to all CeTI members.
Dr. Anna Henschel studied psychology at University of Konstanz and cognitive neuropsychology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and. She completed her PhD in 2020 at the University of Glasgow, where she conducted research on human-robot interaction. In her work, she addressed questions about the psychological and neuroscientific consequences of social interaction with humanoid robots. Dr. Henschel’s research has been published in international scientific journals and her journalistic work has won several awards, including the Dr. Katharine Giles Award from the Association of British Science Writers. She regularly gives talks about social robotics, science communication, and women’s careers in STEM. Now she works as a project manager at Wissenschaft in Dialog – the German organisation for science communication of the scientific community. Link
