The SFB/TR 8 Spatial Cognition is an interdisciplinary collaborative research center located at the University of Bremen and the University of Freiburg. It has been funded by German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2003.
More than 70 researchers from different disciplines, e.g. informatics, psychology, and linguistics, investigate human cognitive structures and abilities concerning space as well as basic structures to deal with spatial information. In terms of application they want to utilize these findings for software of autonomous systems.
