AI offers practical solutions for the optimization of business and logistics processes. Based on data, goods flows and transport routes can be adapted and decision-making supported. In addition, our scientists develop intelligent, personalized purchasing consultants and test them for their suitability for everyday use and their customer benefits. Furthermore, the DFKI researches autonomous mobile manipulation systems for intralogistics and manufacturing scenarios as well as innovative robot solutions for transport and inspection purposes.
