Lifting a glass, clenching a fist, typing a phone number with the index finger – state-of-the-art robotic hands can already do amazing things with the help of biomedical technology. However, things that work in the laboratory often encounter stumbling blocks when put to practice in daily life. Our team at FAU is researching how so-called intelligent prostheses can be further improved and made more reliable.

With the help of interactive artificial intelligence, the prosthesis will learn to recognize human intent more accurately, register its environment – and constantly evolve in the process. To work on these and other research questions, the Horizon Europe project IntelliMan is being funded by the EU with 6 million euros, with the AIROB Lab @FAU receiving 467,000 euros.
