Nearly 10 million euros ($13.6 million) in ERC grants for 6 Technische Universitaet Muenchen researchers
Date:1/24/2011

rks as a senior physician at the German Heart Center Munich and is a recognized expert in the molecular signaling of embryonic heart development and in cardiovascular stem cell biology. Prof. Laugwitz is the spokesperson for the Multicenter Research Group 923 "Molecular Analysis of Cardiovascular Functions" (funded by the German Research Foundation) and in 2006 won the Marie Curie Excellence Team Grant, a prestigious research prize valued at 1.6 million. Prof. Laugwitz receives an ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant.

Feel like a Robot

Robots of the future will see more, hear more, and even feel more. Using a telepresence system, a person can take on the role of a robot. While the person teleoperates, he will not only see and hear what the robotic sensors pick up but will also feel. There has to be a transmission of the so-called haptic sensor data between human and teleoperator.

In order for this vision of realistic telepresence to become reality, the communication between the user and the remotely controlled robot must be improved. A major challenge here is the transfer of haptic sensor data over the Internet. This requires clever coding: Since either transission delays or lost information could negatively affect the sense of reality, the data must be compressed and communicated in a way that ensures both speed and quality.

With the ERC Starting Grant, the team will develop the Prof. Eckehard Steinbach Method for haptic data communication, which carefully manages the limits of human perception similar to MP3 for audio. Application scenarios arise whenever the teleoperator is far away or the distant environment is dangerous, inaccessible, or significantly scaled down. Possible operational fields include the remote-controlling of service robots in space, minimally invasive surgery across long distances, and the assembly of small parts in manufacturing engineering. In recent years, essential preparatory work for the ERC
