Urban Simulations, Cognitive Systems & Robotics and Intelligent Transportation Systems
Research Project 5 (RP 5) is one of ten research projects - or more accurately thematic areas - at TUM CREATE in Singapore. TUM CREATE is a research programme funded by the National Research Foundation (NRF) in Singapore. The scope of this research programme includes a variety of topics related to electro-mobility (e.g. battery technologies, vehicle design and engineering, infrastructure planning). In this context, RP 5 is specifically concerned with Modelling and Optimisation of Architecture and Infrastructure and consists currently of three groups: the Urban Simulation Group, the Cognitive Systems & Robotics Group, and the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Group
Urban Simulations GROUP
The Urban Simulations Group is primarily concerned with the analysis of the potential impact of electro-mobility on urban infrastructure and the environment from a complex systems perspective by means of modelling and simulation. Basically, the research is about answering the question what will happen if we replace hundreds of thousands conventional vehicles with electric vehicles in a city such as Singapore.
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Group
The ITS Group is concerned with the development of ITS technology that is tailored specifically to the needs of Singapore. The ITS Group is also actively involved in the ITS Lab, a joint collaboration between TUM CREATE, A*STAR I2R and Continental.
Cognitive Systems & Robotics Group
Within the cognitive systems group we deal with the research and development of methodologies and infrastructure for next generation service robots. Focus is on systematic integration of mobile service robots into domestic environments and allow humans to interact and control them without any knowledge in robotics. This is being realized through a cognitive architecture capable of reasoning and decision making through knowledge based artificial intelligence techniques.
