tactile mobility systems
The Munich Institute of Robotics and Machine Intelligence (MIRMI) of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has launched the first AI.FACTORY, KI.FABRIK in German, in Bavaria - as announced by the Bavarian government in its high-tech agenda. The KI.FABRIK Bayern aims to become a completely flexible and interconnected location for the local, crisis-safe, and profitable production of state-of-the-art IT and mechatronic high-tech components in Bavaria.
The researchers in the KI-Fabrik project are not only going to address the traditional automation problems, but also investigate problems which are currently not possible to automate by the state-of-the-art industrial automation solutions. For instance, physical interaction with the environment is a challenging task for robots, which halts many industries from using robotics in their assembly processes. Recently, with the introduction of tactile manipulators (cobots) this problem is partly resolved. However, the topic of tactility in mobile systems is still very new, even to the research community. Human-centered, Tactile mobility is one of the main topics of research in the KI-Fabrik project. In order to facilitate this research, a list of necessary hardware systems have been identified by our researchers. As the required hardware cannot be found as a ready to buy solution, this document provides a possibility for the providers to deliver the systems according to a timetable. This tender describes the specifications for the procurement of tactile mobile robotic systems that are denoted as " tactile mobile robot", "tactile mobile manipulator" and "tactile humanoid". The providers or contractors are requested to prepare offers according to the necessary criteria and to submit them in the due time.

Section III: Legal, economic, financial and technical information
Self-declaration of the total yearly turnover of the economic operator, based on the last three fiscal years.
Self-declaration (according to the following requirements) of a sufficient level of experience and product quality demonstrated by:
a) At least 4 reference projects of Sale and delivery or research about tactile robots (in the fields of tactile manipulators and tactile mobile platforms with at least one from each field) stating name, address and email address of a contact person of the contracting body of the reference project, a project name and description of the services provided by the tenderer and the date and duration of the project. TUM reserves the right to verify the tenderer's details by interrogating the contracting body of the reference project.
In the case of groups of economic operators, it must be clearly identifiable which reference project should be assigned to each member. The reference projects of the members fulfilling the minimum requirement are attributed to the group of economic operators.
Only the reference projects specified by the tenderer in the tender form will be considered. For each reference, an additional project sheet (one page) with an illustration of the reference project is permitted.
b) At least 15 published papers in the selected conferences/journals (see the list below) in which the tactile manipulator and mobile platform (at least one in each area) has been used as the experimental setup:
The TUM Tactile Mobility Systems should be equipped with robotic manipulators based on the most advanced tactile robot system with the right high-performance interfaces, precise dynamic models, and interconnectivity to state-of-the-art software ecosystems. Since there will be a lot of collaborations around the world, the robotic setup / sub-systems should be a research platform that is frequently used and widely known by researchers from different research institutes to facilitate collaboration opportunity. For this reason, it is essential to purchase robots that are internationally recognized and used by researchers commonly. Therefore, each tenderer has to provide a list of at least 15 papers published to the following list of conferences and journals.
List of Conferences: IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA), International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems (IROS), Robotics: Science and Systems (RSS), International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML), Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS)
List of Journals: IEEE Transactions on Robotics, The International Journal of Robotics Research, Science Robotics, IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine
