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.

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...
