At the DiesAcademicus on December 2, 2021, Professor Johannes Fottner and Professor Magnus Fröhling received the prestigious TUM Sustainability Award on behalf of the CirculaTUM research network. The interdisciplinary network was founded to bundle the diverse competencies of TUM for a…

How can we achieve a more accurate wheel-rail system design method for stacker cranes? We have developed a prediction model for calculating realistic load spectra over the design life. We integrated this model together with the new DIN EN 13001-3-3 into a software tool. In the future, dynamic…

How do we successfully counter uncertainties in the dynamic environment of production logistics? This initial question is the basis for a current expert survey on networking and the ability to change in production and logistics using autonomous transport systems, which we are currently conducting at…

How do you develop powerful and innovative construction machines? Lecturer Dr.-Ing. Herbert Pfab, Head of Wheel Loader Development at Liebherr Group, will address this question and other exciting topics in our new lecture on heavy equipment. We at TUM fml are anchoring our long-standing research…

How can we shape our economy to be both more sustainable and more resilient, use resources in a smarter manner and preserve them for future generations? With its research profile and study programs, the Technical University of Munich has an outstanding role to play in actively contributing to the…

The German Material Flow Congress was held for the 29th time in mid-March under this heading. The two organizers, the Chair of Materials Handling Material Flow Logistics (fml) at the Technical University of Munich and the VDI Bezirksverein München, Ober- und Niederbayern e.V., presented the event…

Tugger train systems are constantly subject to deviations from target and average characteristic values. A self-learning knowledge management system for finding solutions based on SAP is intended to remedy this situation. Together with Flexus AG, we developed a knowledge management system as an SAP…

The renaissance of deep learning is fueled by publicly available data sets. While data is already available in other application areas of autonomous systems (e.g., autonomous driving or social robotics) logistics has been lagging behind. To overcome this issue, we released the first publicly…

In October 2020 the authors Felix Top, Julia Krottenthaler and Johannes Fottner won the Best Paper Award with their publication "Evaluation of Remote Crane Operation with an Intuitive Tablet Interface and Boom Tip Control" at the IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics. With…

In July 2020 the authors Manuel Stölzner, Michael Kleeberger, Marcel Moll and Johannes Fottner won the Best Student Paper Award with their publication "Investigation of the Dynamic Loads on Tower Cranes during Slewing Operations" at the International Conference on Simulation and Modeling…
