Bavarian Mobility Success Story: EmQopter

From its home in Würzburg, Bavaria, the start-up EmQopter developed the first approvable unmanned aircraft system (UAS) in Germany for fully autonomous flights beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS). The technology opens up two great opportunities. Firstly, EmQopter drones are ideal for industrial use and could even replace cars as tomorrow's mobility solution of choice. And secondly, they can perform key functions for research and development at universities.  The latter is particularly important to the company's founders. Without Bavaria's R&D infrastructure, they could never have established their business. The idea for EmQopter was born many years ago when Nils Gageik and Paul Benz wrote their doctorates in the only academic department for Aerial Computer Science in Germany – at the Julius Maximilians University in Würzburg.

Bavarian Robotics Success Story: Franka Emika

The robots built by Franka Emika, a fledgling company from Munich, typify cross-industry innovation. The start-up derived its initial technology from a project at the Institute of Air Transport and Airport Research in Bavaria. The initial research group soon asked themselves whether they could make the technology available to everyone. An idea was born. Franka Emika’s mission is to sell high-tech robots to a wide target group. Extremely easy to program, the robots can be used by everyone – from individuals and one-person companies through to medium-size businesses and large factories, helping in all those fields that entail repetitive, time-consuming and even dangerous tasks.
