Robotics and Human Machine Interaction
Professorship

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrike Thomas

Our mission is to bring robots into many applications so that people will receive useful support from robots. The applications range from automatic assembly to service robotics and medical robotics. It is important that technical systems are handled intuitively and efficiently by humans. Therefore, we deal with human-technology interaction, among other things. This poses a great challenge, in particular with complex technical systems such as a robot. You can find further information under the headline Research.

On this year ICRA, we contribute with three papers. Carl Gäbert, Chaitanya Bandi and Stephan Schwarz give presentations in London. ICRA is the world leading conference on robotics and automation. Congratulations to them! We will enjoy hopefully a great time in London!

We have three contributions in one of the most important robotics-conferences world wide! Two talks and one workshop will be presented by Stephan Schwarz and Dr. Yitao Ding in Kyoto, Japan. Congratulations to them!

Carl Gäbert presents his paper on CASE 2022 in Mexico, congratulations!

We have a talk on ICRA 2022 in Philadelphia congratulations to Hongxi Zhu! Professor Thomas chairs session on soft robotics!

The first lecture will be given by Bruno Siciliano on the 11th of January 2021 at 10 am.

Wenn Sie motiviert sind in einem unserer Projekte mitzuarbeiten oder haben Ideen für eigene Arbeiten, sprechen Sie uns an. Wir suchen ständig motivierte Studierende.
