Research Programme on human-machine-interaction

Parking aids in our cars, a plethora of new features on our smartphones, wristbands with sensors that monitor our fitness: intelligent technologies are increasingly part of everyday life. Technology assists people of all ages, particularly the elderly, helping them to retain their independence and mobility.

The Federal Ministry of Education and Research is therefore committed to optimising the interaction between humans and technology. Research and development on the themes of 'intelligent mobility', 'digital society' and 'healthy living' are at the heart of the programme.
