Chair for Applied Computer Science III

Welcome to the Chair for Applied Computer Science III (Robotics and Embedded Systems)! The chair was founded by Prof. Dr. Dominik Henrich in 2003. It deals with robots as information processing systems, which are able to capture their environment and modify and interact with it.

In research, the chair focuses on the coexistence and cooperation of humans and robots. The aim is to lift the strict spatial separation between humans and robots to combine their strengths synergistically. For this, the camera-based surveillance, collision detection, motion planning and intention recognition are considered. Another focus is the intuitive programming of robots. Goal is to reduce the high programming effort and to make the robot even for non-experts available and thus increase the potential applications. For this, the simple sensor integration, programming by demonstration as well as imperative and declarative approaches are considered.

In teaching, the chair focuses on robotics, computer vision, pattern recognition, embedded systems and operating systems in the form of lectures, tutorials, internships, projects and seminars.
