In the future, our economic and private life is supposed to be operated and facilitated by the Internet of Things (IoT) and this is to happen in real time.

CeTI Interaktion zwischen mensch und Maschine in Echtzeit

Communication should take place in real time in the future

In the future, humans are supposed to be able to interact with cross-linked automated systems in the real or virtual world in real time. To achieve this goal, scientists of the TU Dresden from the areas of expertise of Electrical Engineering and Communication Technology, Computer Sciences, Psychology, Neuroscience and Medicine work together with researchers of the TU München, the German Aerospace Center, the Fraunhofer Society and international research institutions in the CeTI excellence cluster. They interdisciplinary research key areas of human control in human-machine cooperation, in software and hardware design, at sensor and actuator technologies as well as in communication networks. This research is the basis for new applications in medicine, industry (industry 4.0, co working) and the 'Internet of competences' (education, rehabilitation
