The Research Training Group is dedicated to investigating techniques that can ensure the error-free operation of technology in the context of the ever-increasing interactions between humans and robots. Many tasks are better solved in collaboration of such systems rather than by each system separately. In the future, collaborative sensor networks that can guarantee integrity will be core components of automated or autonomous vehicles, but also of systems in the context of the fourth industrial revolution (“Industry 4.0”), in the construction industry and in service robotics. In particular, such groups of mobile and communicating sensors have to guarantee the integrity of their navigational information in order not to endanger their environment. A unique combination of experts at Leibniz Universität provides ideal conditions for the solution of the research problems to be tackled in the context of the RTG. PhD candidates will work on the methodological basis as well as on the implementation of concepts for integrity and collaboration for dynamic sensor networks in connection with digital maps.
