The Center for Computing Technologies (TZI) is part of the University of Bremen (UNIHB). UNIHB/TZI has profound experience in the field of pervasive computing. Recently the TZI Concerted Activity "Mobile Solutions" finished the FP6 Integrated Project wearIT@work developing wereable computing solutions for different innovative applications. The research group Artificial Intelligence within the TZI at UNIHB which will be headed by Michael Beetz will substantially build on the work of his current group: the Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) group at the Department of Informatics at the Technische Universiät München, Germany. The IAS group employs about 20 doctoral students in the areas of perception, interpretation, and analysis of intentional activities and plan-based and action-aware control of robotic agents. It is one of the core research groups in the German cluster of ther excellence Cognition for Technical Systems, where it is responsible for one of the demonstrators - the Assistive Kitchen. The IAS group is in close contact and exchanges researchers with leading international research groups (Willow Garage, Bosch, CMU, Georgia Tech, Tokyo, LAAS-CNRS, etc.).
