SFB/TR 8 Overview

SFB/TR 8 Spatial Cognition - Welcome!

The interdisciplinary Transregional Collaborative Research Center Spatial Cognition: Reasoning, Action, Interaction has been established by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) on 01 January 2003 at the Universities Bremen and Freiburg.

Spatial Cognition is concerned with the acquisition, organization, utilization and revision of knowledge about spatial environments, be it real or abstract, human or machine. Research issues range from the investigation of human spatial cognition to mobile robot navigation. The goal of the SFB/TR 8 is to investigate the cognitive foundations for human-centered spatial assistance systems.
