Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM): one of the most famous technical university in Germany. TUM is divided into 13 departments, possessing valuable skills, knowledge, expertise and resources in the chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering, and computer science fields. 

The Chair of Robotics and Embedded Systems in the TUM Faculty of Informatics carries out research and education in the areas of Human Robot Interaction and Service Robots, Medical Robotics, Cognitive Robotics and Embedded Systems. Especially the latter two areas are of high relevance for electromobility. Cognitive Robotics encompassing a comprehensive area of topics ranging from sensor models by the way of individual sensor processing entities (e.g. for high-speed face tracking) to high-level cognitive skills for navigation, adaptation, learning. Embedded Systems investigate with special emphasis on fault tolerance and high availability; special topics are the design of very small redundant systems and the associated software development models and tool chains.

The Electrochemical Research Group at TUM emerged from the former chair E19 of Prof. Stimming (now Newcastle University) in the TUM Physics Department. It is hosted by the Chair of Robotics and Embedded Systems (Prof. Knoll) and the Chair of Physical Chemistry (Prof. Heiz). It is led by Dr. Oliver Schneider, who has many years’ experience in electrochemistry and materials science. The working group is carrying out research at the interface between Materials Science and Electrochemistry, with a focus on Materials for Electrochemical Energy Conversion and Storage.
