Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics

Welcome to the website of the Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics (ASM)

Rainbow above the ASM building

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.
