KIT Center Information ˑ Systems ˑ Technologies  (KCIST)


Through integrated research activities across topics within KCIST and disciplines at KIT, we are conducting research and developing robotic technologies for service applications, manufacturing, mobility and healthcare to improve everybody’s quality of life.

The major research activities range from assistive robotics, collaborative robotics, and cognitive robotics to robot perception, robot programming by demonstration, grasping, dexterous and mobile manipulation to industrial robotics, process control and automation. Our goal is to develop robotic systems with advanced capabilities regarding intelligent sensing, advanced motion control, safe interaction, intuitive programming and performance.
