What is CoTeSys?
CoTeSys stands for "Cognition for Technical Systems".
How must technical systems be equipped to have abilities, similar to those of humans, in order to learn from observations and realize their environment?
CoTeSys investigates cognition for technical systems such as vehicles, robots, and factories. Cognitive technical systems are equipped with artificial sensors and actuators, integrated and embedded into physical systems, and act in a physical world. They differ from other technical systems in that they perform cognitive control and have cognitive capabilities. By cognitive capabilities we mean information processing algorithms such as perception, attention, memory, action, learning, and planning. The aim of CoTeSys is to get technical systems that "know what they are doing" - so to speak.
