fortiss is the research and transfer institute on software-intensive
systems and services in Munich, Germany. fortiss currently employs 130
researchers, and it is associated and cooperates closely with the
Technical University of Munich. The competency area “Robotics and
Machine Learning“ works on topics regarding the digitalization of
economy and industry in Bavaria, especially with regards to the
integration of cognitive capabilities and data processing.

We develop intelligent systems and solutions in the areas of robotics,
Industrie 4.0, autonomous driving, and farming in the context of
various projects with well-known research and industrial partners.
Topics include plausibility checks for decision making in autonomous
driving, the interpretation and execution of underspecified tasks for
robots, and the integration of knowledge in heterogeneous data
