What does CeTI stand for?

CeTI stands for Centre for Tactile Internet with Human-in-the-Loop. The vision of CeTI, a Cluster of Excellence at the Technische Universität Dresden, is to enable people to interact with cyber-physical systems in the real or virtual world via intelligent communication networks and systems in near real time.

Why does the CeTIBAR exist?

The CeTI Cluster of Excellence at TU Dresden is opening a unique research laboratory with the CeTIBAR. Externally, the bar has the feel of a modern restaurant, but it has been equipped with collaborative robots – so-called cobots – which are involved in preparation and service. In this state-of-the-art facility the interaction between humans and machines is actively researched and scientific findings are directly subjected to proof of concept. Science and research for the future are demonstrated in a transparent and approachable way in this laboratory. At the same time, the CeTIBAR is an inspiring venue for numerous events that make innovative cutting-edge research accessible to everyone.

How the CeTIBAR works

Is the bar run entirely without people?

Our CeTIBar is always operated and used by humans in cooperation with robots. The aim and vision of CeTI is not full automation, but active human-machine cooperation. Robots do not replace people, but support and complement their work, especially in repetitive tasks.

What tasks will robots take over in the bar?

The robots in our Human-Machine Collaboration Lab support people in simple activities or routine tasks that can easily tire them out. These supporting activities are programmed by us and can be performed well by robots.

What will the bar offer?

We are opening our real-world laboratory for networking events as well as various events for the purpose of scientific communication, such as workshops or specialist lectures on the tactile Internet with human-machine interaction. Upcoming events can be found here on the website.

On what occasions will the bar be open?

CeTIBAR regularly opens its doors to the public with various offers or events during which you can get to know CeTI’s research. As a real laboratory, it offers researchers the opportunity to work together on an interdisciplinary basis and test their ideas in society. This unique facility is not only relevant for research, but also as a meeting place for students, teaching staff, young academics and guests of the university.
