Welcome to CoTeSys.
On October 31, 2014 the cluster Cognition for Technical Systems - CoTeSys finally ended. The funding for the project was not extended.
We wish to thank the German Research Foundation (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG) and the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) for their kind support of the Munich-based cluster CoTeSys, which was financed under the German Excellence Initiative from 2006 until October 2014.
Furthermore, we would like to thank all cooperating researchers as well as all our partners in academia and industry.
CoTeSys stands for "Cognition for Technical Systems".
Cognitive capabilities such as perception, reasoning, learning, and planning turn technical systems into systems that "know what they are doing". Starting from the human brain the Cluster of Excellence "CoTeSys" investigates cognition for technical systems such as vehicles, robots, and factories. Technical systems that are cognitive will be much easier to interact and cooperate with, and will be more robust, flexible, and efficient.
We congratulate the winners of the CoTeSys Cognitive Robotics Best Paper at IROS 2014!
Prof. Mataric and Juan Fasalo won the CoTeSys Best Paper Award at the IROS confernce last week. Congratulations!
