At 25.06.2019 the kickoff event of the project ROBDEKON took place at the Fraunhofer Institute IOSB in Karlsruhe. The aim of this BMBF-funded project is to investigate autonomous and semi-autonomous robot systems for decontamination in misanthropic environments. 

Current work on ROBDEKON was broadcast on television.


Dr.-Ing. Florian Pfaff was awarded with the SICK-science award 2018 for the Best Dissertation for his PhD thesis "Multitarget Tracking Using Orientation Estimation for Optical Belt Sorting".
The award ceremony will take place during the „50 Jahre Informatik“ celebrations on June 19 at the KIT.
