Welcome

The Robotics Innovation Center (RIC) belongs to the Bremen location of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI GmbH). Headed by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Frank Kirchner, here scientists develop robot systems to be used for complex tasks on land, under water, in the air, and in space. The RIC closely cooperates with the Robotics Group at the University of Bremen.

The DFKI is the leading German research centre in relation to innovative software technology based on methods of Artificial Intelligence. It comprises sites in the cities of Kaiserslautern, Saarbrücken and Bremen, as well as a project office in Berlin, and a laboratory in the state of Lower Saxony.
