Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics
Welcome to the website of the Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics (ASM)
Autonomous and mechatronic systems are entering our daily lives and get into increasingly right interaction with us. Our mission at ASM is to research human-centered mechatronics and robotics striving for solutions that provide the desired performance along with user-friendly interaction characteristics. We put emphasis on wearable systems such as prostheses or exoskeletons, cognitive systems such as collaborative or humanoid robots, and generally on tasks with close human-robot interaction. Beyond examining mechatronic components and controls, such scenarios crucially demand considering human factors to meet user requirements and achieve synergetic interfacing and interaction of humans and machines.
The Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics welcomes Stella Chenxu Hao.
Stella has a background in psychology (cognition & cognitive neuroscience) and will work on fusing models of physical and cognitive human-robot interaction.
Philipp Beckerle organizes a workshop on human behavior modeling as a part of ACM/IEEE 2022 International Conference on HRI together with Arkady Zgonnikov, Serge Thill, and Catholijn Jonker.
The workshop will include keynote talks from Dorsa Sadigh, Tamara Lorenz, Randy Gomez, and Olivia Guest, a...
The first session in our lecture series "Autonomous Systems: From Research to Products" organized together with Siemens started on Wednesday.
Each session will comprise of impulse talks providing academic and industrial perspectives on autonomous systems, which is finalized by interactive discuss...
A short video introducing Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Philipp Beckerle and the work at our chair has been published by the FAU.
Maria Pozzi from SIRS lab at the University of Siena is currently visiting our Chair of Autonomous Systems.
Maria has introduced herself to the University by giving a seminar talk. And last week she gave a summer school on robotic grasping.
