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.
This week, the Chair of Autonomous Systems and Mechatronics presented itself at the EEI information day for students. We presented the different research fields at the chair by means of selected projects. After the short presentation, the students could try out the projects themselves.
Last week, the third workshop of the project “Integrated models of cognitive and physical human-robot interaction” funded by Volkswagen Stiftung took place. This time at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, during the workshop Philipp Beckerle, Stella Chenxu Hao, Nele Rußwinkel, and Daniel Hauefle discussed how t...
This week, the chair hosted Gionata Salvietti and Maria Pozzi from the University of Siena. They presented their research on human-centered robotics in a colloquium on Wednesday.
We will have a colloquium on Human-Centered Robotics with talks given by two guest speakers, Dr. Gionata Salvietti and Dr. Maria Pozzi from the University of Siena.
The talks will be on Wednesday, Nov 23, 2022 from 16:00 to 17:30 in 02.037 Paul-Gordan-Str. 3/5 (Röthelheim campus) 91052 Erlangen a...
Last week Adna Bliek and Daniel Andreas presented the research and teaching of our chair to the new students of the Bachelor Elektrotechnik-Elektronik-Informationstechnik at the contact fair.
