Research Topics


Robots can not only perform complex activities in places where it is dangerous, unreasonable, or unhealthy for humans, but are increasingly being used in collaborative teams to carry out sensitive tasks together with people. Here, computer scientists and designers work in interdisciplinary teams with biologists, mathematicians, computer linguists, industrial designers, electrical engineers, physicists and psychologists. The design of the robots corresponds to the latest findings in mechatronics. The programming is based on complex, massively parallel embedded system solutions.
