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 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.
On June 23rd, Philipp Beckerle completed his habilitation with a presentation at TU Dortmund. Meanwhile, he has received his certificate.
If you want to learn more about human-robot body experience, you will find the aggregation of his research results in this Springer book.
The Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics welcomes Martin Rohrmüller.
Martin will work on robot hand and arm control and human-robot interaction.
