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.





This was the first participation of our Institute at the Lange Nacht der Wissenschaften at FAU and was very well received. The visitors showed a lot of interest in our demos which included mainly human-robot interaction. Thanks to everybody who visited and to all contributors, especially to Kultu...

Arkady Zgonnikov from TU Delft is visiting our Institute this week. His visit started with a lab tour and discussion about cognitive modeling and haptic interfaces in human-robot interaction. Today, Arkady Zgonnikov gave a talk on cognitive modeling for HRI in traffic and beyond.
