Embedded AI


Embedded AI explores the integration of AI into physical entities like robots and autonomous systems. It represents the convergence of AI with physical presence, enabling systems to interact with their environment in human-like ways. Key applications include robotics, autonomous vehicles, and industrial automation. Major challenges in embedding AI into tiny devices like microcontrollers and the Internet of Things include their limited computational power, and the security of memory and often also energy.

FAU’s research in this domain often involves collaborations with industrial partners and focuses on areas like AI in manufacturing and Hardware-Software-Co-Design.
