The Institute for Management Cybernetics e.V. (IfU) is a non-profit, independent, cross-industry and interdisciplinary research and development institute at RWTH Aachen University in the field of economic and social cybernetics and mobile robotics. The subfield of mobile robotics deals in particular with the autonomy and navigation of mobile robot systems and mobile manipulators in semi- and unstructured environments. These systems are applied and evaluated in application areas such as intralogistics, production, on construction sites, in the service sector (e.g. in geriatric care) and on streets, sidewalks and in parks. One area of research is adaptive and intelligent robot systems that are enabled to perform complex tasks (e.g. in assembly) using machine learning methods.
