Sensors & Robotics

Extending life expectancy, improving the quality of life and avoiding illnesses have been some of the main drivers of modern medicine. Against this background, the field of sensors and robotics has played a key role in making valuable contributions to medicine. FAU has initiated numerous projects that allow advancement in patient care through wireless sensors, improved human-technology interaction, intelligent materials and wearable robotics. Research is conducted in collaboration with renowned institutions, clinics and companies in order to transfer knowledge into practical medical devices.
